Saturday, July 7, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Where:
Hillsborough County Cooperative Extension Service Office, 5339 County Road 579, Seffner, FL 33584

What:
8:30 AM - Attend a Compost Happens 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 Water-Wise 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.*
