Nursery Production Water Webinar Series

Water, water, everywhere!  This is an awesome educational opportunity for growers.  The Water Education Alliance for Horticulture is working with University of Florida Cooperative Extension, OFA, FNGLA, the German grower association Zentralverband Gartenbau and several experts at universities and companies on webinar topics to help growers conserve, recirculate, and treat irrigation water.
This is a great opportunity to sit at your own computer for lunch and get the latest information from around the world on a variety of timely water topics.  The technology is very easy to use so don't get intimidated.  You will click on a link and join the webinar.  Just make sure that your computer has speakers or you have a phone that can call for the audio.  It couldn't be any simpler to get UF Extension education.
