Have questions about gardening? Food? Pests?

Lake Sarasota residents with questions about plantings, gardens, bug control, mulching, growing food, native species, etc. may find a useful resource in IFAS Sarasota, the local branch of the state's extension service that offers a library and consultations to residents for agricultural and gardening needs.

From their site:
