Fort King National Historic Landmark hosting free landscaping class

The Fort King National Historic Landmark is hosting another installation of its ‘Classroom in the Garden’ series this weekend which will teach participants how to have an attractive and low-maintenance landscape.

The gardening class will begin at 10 am on Saturday, August 20 at the Fort King National Historic Landmark, which is located at 3925 E Fort King Street in Ocala.

During the class, attendees will learn about the positive and negative impacts that their landscape can have on the surrounding environment. Those in attendance will also be introduced to the nine principles of Florida Friendly Landscaping, which will teach them how to have a landscape that conserves water, protects water quality, and provides habitat for local wildlife.

There is no cost to attend the class, and it is open to the public. No registration is required.
