One of the many benefits of gardening involves planting not only for our own pleasure in seeing beautiful blossoms, but also for butterflies, other insects and birds. In last September’s newsletter, I wrote about how to find native plants for your yard.

There are many more great resources for finding plants and the techniques for growing a Homegrown National Park. Another excellent resource is the UF Agricultural Extension Office. You can find classes like “Composting Workshop on Zoom” here.

Simply set the location to Hillsborough in the drop-down menu and set the timeframe to "upcoming." Some classes are in person, and others by zoom. Some require a registration fee.
