Abstract


Turf Tuesdays was a district-wide evening class series for homeowners involved in managing turfgrass. The information delivered through the class series consisted of practical knowledge to assist homeowners in managing the complex challenges
that climate, insect, and disease pose to turf culture. Information from the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods program, especially Lawn Best Management Practices, has been used in the development of the curriculum of this series. This series was organized by the Northwest District Horticulture Program Implementation Team with seven counties participating. The series was taught by agents and specialists through videoconference, allowing them to maximize effort and productivity while minimizing travel. Four classes comprised the series.
