To our valued residents and volunteers:

Due to the COVID-19 developments and guidelines provided by the University of Florida,

the following are implemented immediately.

  • All Master Gardener Volunteer activities are canceled. This includes classes, meetings, lectures, etc.
  • The Annex located on Hollywood Blvd., is closed. 
  • The Niceville location at the Senior Center is closed.
