Fall Native Plant Sale at
Chinsegut Hill Retreat

We return to the Hill to bring you your favorite Florida Native Plant species! September is the perfect time to establish your new natives as rains continue til the end of the season. If you haven't been to Chinsegut Hill, you should certainly do so. The plant sale is free and open to the public; tours of the Manor House will be available for $5.00.

Mark your calendar and come early – popular plant species sell out quickly!

Monthly Meetings and Public Programs

Our regular monthly meetings are held at 7:00 PM on the first Monday of most months. They are notorious for intriguing topics and a great light supper. Educational programs will help you learn about native plants, both in the wild and in landscapes.

Arrive at the Hernando UF/IFAS Extension Office at 6:30 pm for a light meal and socializing. We look forward to meeting you!
