What is the Garden Bench?

The Garden Bench is a newsletter published 10 times a year that is written and edited by Master Gardener Volunteers with occasional contributors such as UF scientists, agents, program coordinators, and program assistants. It targets Manatee County home gardeners and the general public in order to impart timely, useful, and in-depth information on gardening topics - supported by University of Florida research - that promotes Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ principles.
