One of the many things people think about when thinking about Florida is palm trees. Palms have a tropical look, but due to our cooler climate, Florida has a limited number of palms that thrive here, and they require special maintenance practices. This webinar about palms explains the different species and maintenance requirements for having a happy, healthy palm in landscapes.

There is no registration fee, but participants must register online (those needing assistance with registering can call the Extension Office at 352-955-2402). The webinar is limited to 100 participants.

Gardening provides powerful therapeutic impacts. In this webinar Master Gardener Volunteer and Director of Therapeutic Horticulture at Wilmot Gardens Leah Diehl teaches about the healing power of gardens.
