Urban Horticulture

How Soils and Native
Landscapes Can Save the IRL

Where: Satellite Beach Civic Center, 565 Cassia Blvd, Satellite Beach, 32937

Come join us and learn how you can create healthy soil, incorporate native plants in your landscape, and help the Indian River Lagoon! Anyone who has moved to Florida knows that we are simply gardening in sand. Although native plants can handle this much better than non-native plants, we can help our soil to do more to help the IRL. Building organic matter in the soil, to at least 5%, increases both nutrient and water holding capacity. Increasing landscapes with this holding capacity reduces both storm water runoff and nutrient leaching!

Time and Date: Saturday, May 7th 10:00 – 11:00 am
