OUTSIDE: Sustainable Landscape Collaborative

Virtual or in-person | Lake Nona, FL

Increasing the adoption of sustainable landscape practices will help create a more vibrant, healthy, and sustainable future for all Floridians. Rapid population growth, water responsibility issues, land conservation challenges, sea-level rise, coastal community resilience, biodiversity loss, and climate change are a few examples of the challenges facing the Florida landscape. These vital issues in Florida require us to take action and change certain landscaping behaviors and patterns, so we can contribute to the solutions needed in the future.

The way we achieve our purpose for OUTSIDE is going to be determined by all of us. By coming together and working collaboratively, we can look for specific actions and solutions which we can apply toward achieving our purpose.
