Need an excuse to not mow your lawn in March? UF/IFAS Extension agents in the Florida Panhandle are asking residents to skip their soon-to-be-weekly outdoor chore until the calendar flips to April. The idea for “No Mow March” is borrowed from “No Mow May,” a concept begun in the United Kingdom that has now spread to northern parts of the United States. Check out this link for a video about “No Mow March” events and the photo contest.
Here is a website with more information on No Mow March. On this site, you’ll find a link to sign up to be a participant in the No Mow March movement, take time to check out what Okaloosa and other counties are doing by clicking on “Events” and see much more about pollinators and Gardening in the Panhandle on this site.
And help get the word out about No Mow March and encourage others to celebrate pollinators in the Panhandle!
