Lauderhill Green Series Starts September 17

Lauderhill Commissioner Ken Thurston is Back at it Again! Season 5 of the Green Series is Set to Commence this Week for the Residents of the City of Lauderhill.

 Commissioner Ken Thurston in his 5th year as City Commissioner started the Green Series the very first year he was elected by the residents of Lauderhill. Since then he has worked with Waste Pro, the City’s recycling provider, to help underwrite the costs associated with the series.

This year’s Green Series will include a total of 7 free classes at City Hall. The Green Series includes classes that help residents with planting gardens, maintaining lawns, growing lawns, plants and trees, selecting edible gardens for your home/condo, and general irrigations techniques.

All classes are located in the Multi-Purpose Rooms at City Hall 5581 West Oakland Park Blvd. – 5581 West Oakland Park Boulevard, 33313.

The first class this season is this week and is “BIG HARVEST……SMALL SPACE – How to maximize the yield while growing your condo or backyard,” Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 6 pm.

Commissioner Thurston explained, “Years ago, many of us lost our trees to a citrus canker epidemic. In an effort to replenish, we will continue to give away citrus trees at each and every class. I love to see people growing their own fruits again. Tangerines, grapefruits and lemons are just some of what we give away at the Green Series classes.”

For additional information or to RSVP, please call Lexie at 954-777-2040 or email her at . Seats are provided on a first come first serve basis.
