While many parts of the country head inside during the cold winter months, residents of Weeki Wachee, Florida are blessed with warm weather and adventure year round. This weekend take advantage of these local events:

Free Gardening Workshop:

Florida landscaping can be tough if you are used to the northern flora and fauna. Luckily the Citrus County Utilities Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is offering a free gardening workshop about best watering practices and drought tolerant plants. Classes are held at the Citrus County Extension Service Building, located at 3650 W Sovereign Path in Lecanto. Please contact Steven Davis at 352-527-5708 to confirm your participation.
