Success Story: Florida-Friendly Living

Take the guess work out of "going green!" Follow Joan Bradshaw, Citrus County Extension Director, as she guides you through Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ principles on her new Web site, Florida-Friendly Living.

Funded by a UF/IFAS Extension Program Enhancement Grant and the Southwest Florida Water Management District, the site features short educational videos produced by UF/IFAS Communication Services alongside text, links, and photos. 

Florida-Friendly Living not only details Florida-Friendly exterior landscaping practices, but also provides indoor conservation tips, encouraging homeowners to save water, reduce energy use, and manage household waste with simple "green" practices.
