Event description

Description

This registration site is for residents of Hillsborough County ONLY. If you live in another county, please go to Compost Happens, Water-Wise and Rain Water Harvesting Workshop (Non-Hillsborough County Residents) to register for these workshops.

8:30 AM - Attend a Composting Workshop and learn to turn trash to treasure. You'll receive a free compost bin and thermometer too (1 per household and the representative of the household must be an adult )*!

9:30 AM - The Microirrigation workshop will teach you how you can have a healthy and attractive lawn and landscape while conserving water. Tips on installing and using micro-irrigation are also presented. This irrigation method not only conserves water, but is not as restricted by current water restrictions as traditional in-ground irrigation systems! Hillsborough County residents may receive 1 free micro-irrigation kit* (per household and the representative of the household must be an adult) when they attend a workshop.

10:30 AM - Learn how Rain Barrels are useful for collecting rainwater for irrigation while reducing erosion and stormwater runoff and how to make your own barrel using a 55-gallon plastic food-grade drum. Hillsborough County residents may receive 1 free rain barrel* (per household and the representative of the household must be an adult) when they attend a workshop.

Sponsored by Hillsborough County Extension and Water Resource Services/Public Utilities, University of Florida IFAS, Tampa Bay Water and Tampa Water Department.

*If you have attended any of these workshops in the past you are not eligible to receive another free item.*

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the class start time shown

Attending workshops on behalf of another person is not permitted. No photographs or recording of presentations is allowed without prior permission from the presenter(s).
