Delivered in the Tampa Bay Times
The Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education program, with funding from the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust, has produced a curriculum supplement on ornamental horticulture with Florida Native Plants for distribution to schools and with newspapers.
Topics covered in the supplement include invasive exotic plants, advantages of landscaping with natives, Florida Friendly(tm) landscape principles, garden design, growing zones, creating wildlife habitat, landscaping with wildflowers, trees, palms, and edible plants. There are lots of references for students to find more information, and suggestions for related projects and exercises that students can do.
The 16-page, tabloid-sized insert will be delivered with the Times on Friday, Oct. 30. It will be distributed to high schools in Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties and inserted into all editions of the Tampa Bay Times.
The final schedule for the April 30 - May 7 Cuba trip to be led by the T.R.E.E. Insititue is available. If you have not had the opportunity to participate in one of these FNPS sponsored trips, maybe now is the time! Click here to down load the schedule.
If you register for this trip, please mail your application, do not email it as the organizer will be out of the country and won't get her email. It looks like it should be a wonderful trip.
