Florida-Friendly Landscaping

The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences off-campus Volusia County Extension will present Edible Landscaping and Plants in Local History, part of the ReGrow the Loop collection, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., September 30, 2023, at the Ormond Beach Regional Library.

Extension agents, that serve as the county’s teachers, reach more than 2 million people each year through presentations, telephone calls, lab diagnoses, pamphlets and other outreach programs in sustainable agriculture, natural resource conservation, commercial horticulture, residential horticulture, energy conservation, food and nutrition, finances and home purchasing, child and family development and 4H youth development.

Hosted by Dream Green Volusia, Reid Farm and Tomoka State Park Rangers, participants can learn Florida-Friendly Landscaping principles to grow food in their yard and the importance plants have played in the history of the Ormond Scenic Loop and Trail, a 30-mile, double-loop of roadways traversing some of the most beautiful and diverse natural scenery remaining in all of coastal central Florida. Experts will be on hand to provide an informative and enjoyable experience for all attendees.

Admission is free with RSVP to 386-676-4191. Location: 30 S. Beach St., Ormond Beach. For more information, visit
