Florida Style Landscaping Workshop Series comprises six classes held 6:00 p.m. on Thursday evenings at City of St. Petersburg Water Resources Department, 1650 Third Avenue North. You may register for one or more classes at no charge. Please note that class 4 on October 24 is a continuation of class 3 held on October 10. It is recommended that you not attend class 4 if you are unable to attend class 3 as well.
NOTE: Seating is limited for each class. We appreciate your courtesy by canceling your reservation for any class you cannot attend as soon as possible. This will open your seat for an interested person on the waiting list.
If you register for and attend the October 3rd class, you may also order and pay for one or two rain barrels at $25 each. You will pick up your barrel(s) at the end of the October 3rd class.
Rain Barrels are supplied by Pinellas County Extension and will be transported to the class the day of the event. If rain barrels will be transported inside your car please bring something to cover your seats to protect from possible soil or moisture.
Rain Barrel Specifications: Plastic, recycled food-grade drums. Please note: color of drum may vary. Drum dimensions: 3' tall, 22" diameter. Capacity: approximately 55 gallons. These drums have two 3" diameter threaded holes with caps in a NON-REMOVABLE top. Please see photo below for examples of how these drums may be cut for a larger hole in the top. As part of the installation we recommend the user attach screen (not supplied) to the top of the barrel to exclude mosquitoes and to filter roof debris.
