Florida Yards & Neighborhoods
Program At Sanibel Public Library
Sanibel Public Library will be hosting the Lee County Extension on Thursday,
October 29 featuring the Florida Yards & Neighborhoods (FYN) program begin-
ning at 9 a.m. FYN teaches homeowners about “Florida friendly” gardening, a
sustainable way to have a beautiful yard while being kind to the delicate South Florida
and Sanibel environments.
The FYN class covers such topics as “What does it mean to be Florida friendly?”
and “What’s so special about native plants?” The class teaches the nine principles of
creating and maintaining a Florida friendly yard. Following these principles will help to
create and maintain a quality landscape while reducing the use of fertilizers and pesti-
cides, conserving water supplies and increasing native habitats. The class will be taught
by Master Gardeners Kathy White and Mary Ann Parson.
The public is invited to this library program. There is no registration required and
no additional cost to participate.

We, atop our guys’ shoulders,
waved our candles, pushed adult-
Strawberry Field aglow
against the backdrop of New York
All we were interested in was being

the first time.
Sail on, silver boy,
we are sailing right behind.
