Our yards and neighborhoods are pathways to our waterways. The decisions we make--from developing a home site to improving and maintaining our property--will determine the future of our treasured water resources. The Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program provides educational and outreach activities for homeowners using nine simple steps starting with, “planting the right plant at the right place.” Learn more at the Eco-Living Center at Rutenberg Park in Ft Myers. Attend a free weekly guided tour…. of our sustainable landscape every Wednesday at 10:30AM. Schedule a group tour by calling 239-533-7505. Submit your questions to Extgardener@leegov.com.
