Seeking volunteers for Florida’s wildflowers
Can you help a teacher plan, plant or maintain a wildflower garden at a school near you? We are looking for Florida Wildflower Foundation, Master Gardeners, FNPS and Garden Club members to volunteer in the Foundation's Seeds for Schools program in the following counties: Alachua, Bradford, Brevard, Broward, Citrus, Clay, Collier, Duval, Escambia, Flagler, Hillsborough, Indian River, Jefferson, Lake, Lee, Leon, Levy, Manatee, Martin, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Santa Rosa, Seminole, St. Johns, and Volusia.
For the names of participating schools, email Claudia Larsen, Seeds for Schools program administrator, at SFS@flawildflowers.org. Wildflower garden projects will begin in September, so please consider volunteering now. Your participation will enrich the lives of Florida’s future generations while introducing them to native plants and wildflowers!
