Florida Yards & Neighborhoods Program
.
The Florida Yards & Neighborhoods (FYN) Program is now funded through The Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM) and The Miami-Dade Solid Waste Management Department. We would like to thank these agencies for taking such great interest in this tremendously beneficial program for our community. Our FYN provides education on 'Florida-friendly' landscaping principles throughout the county to homeowner associations, landscape maintenance firms, municipalities, and other stakeholder groups. 
Key focal areas include water conservation, improved water quality, proper fertilizer and pesticide use, proper plant selection, and other issues related to protecting water resources.
