Horticulture Extension agents provide homeowners, HOA, plant nurseries, and landscape professionals with information on Florida-Friendly Landscape (FFL) plants including lawn care, plant selection, water conservation, insect and disease management through a variety of workshops. Master Gardener Volunteers also help educate the community regarding horticulture through educational outreach and leading community gardens. They provide thousands of hours of service to the local community.  Volunteers also answer questions and conduct soil pH tests in county offices while creating educational opportunities to expand the educational mission of UF/IFAS.
