  • What is the Florida Yards
    and Neighborhoods (FYN) Program?

The FYN team is a committed group of Master Gardeners who conduct yard visits for FYN certification and consultation, and also assist county agents by teaching rain barrel and pond management classes. Request a visit or find out about classes and events coordinated by the FYN team  at Extension Services FYN or
