Please join us for an educational workshop on composting methods and the use of mulch in your landscape.

Presentation by Taryn Sudol, Florida-Friendly Landscaping Agent, UF IFAS Extension Seminole County, with an introduction from Erin Micelli, Horticulture Manager at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens. 

This is a FREE educational opportunity. No registration is required. Presentation will take place in the Wayne M. Densch Discovery Center.
