Becoming a Lazy Gardener

with Taylor Clem

Wednesday, August 3 at 12 pm

Our landscapes are remarkably unique, a unique expression of our personal tastes. No matter which type of landscape you have, we can all suffer from “over loving our landscape.” This could lead to insect infestations, fungal pathogens, and an overall sad-looking landscape. During this talk, you’ll learn about the major landscaping faux pas that lead to landscape decline. By following these tips to prevent common landscape issues, you’ll enjoy your landscape more and work less—becoming a lazy gardener. Taylor Clem is Nassau County’s Horticulture Extension Agent, County Extension Director, and Master Gardener Volunteer Coordinator.

Attendance is free and open to the public and attendants may bring their lunch. Seating is limited on a first come, first served basis. This program is wheelchair accessible.

“Board Games Beyond Monopoly”
with Dale Martin
July 2022

Dale Martin presented “Board Games Beyond Monopoly” for its July Brown Bag Lunch lecture. The variety of board games has exploded over the past few decades. Unfortunately, most of these games are unknown to most people due to the niche market of board game players. In this talk, Dale Martin introduced many new games to those interested in this enjoyable pastime. Martin is the City Manager of the City of Fernandina Beach.
