Join us for Companion Planting with Fleet Farming (Webinar) on Tuesday, March 16 at 7 PM.

By using pest control and pollination, and maximizing your garden space, you can grow a fruitful garden. In this program, Caroline Chomanics, passionate horticulturalist, will dive into Companion Planting, a planting technique that includes different crops planted in proximity of each other. This technique offers various ways to grow a healthy garden, including providing habitat for beneficial insects and increasing crop productivity. Led by the team at Fleet Farming, a non-profit program of IDEAS For Us, Florida growers will learn the basics of companion planting, highlighting edible plant combinations for a thriving garden design.

Special Instructions: Participants are encouraged to bring paper and a writing utensil for note-taking.

This program is presented by Caroline Chomanics, Fleet Farming manager, and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
