If your work has anything to do with landscapes or the plants that go into them, you can benefit from 2003 Florida-Georgia Green Industry Updates in October and November.

The updates include three seminars in north Florida. The first, Oct. 21 at the Duval County Extension office in Jacksonville, is especially for landscape professionals.

The second program, Oct. 22 at the University of Florida Research and Education Center in Quincy, is for organizations that install and maintain landscape landscapes. And the third, Nov. 4 in Quincy, is for nursery and greenhouse growers.

The day-long seminars will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. The $40 fee for each ($45 after Oct. 1) covers handouts, refreshment breaks, lunch and other costs.
