The Flip My Florida Yard TV Series Seeking Interested Florida Public Schools

Season Two of the Flip My Florida Yard TV Series Seeking Interested Florida Public Schools

In partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Science (UF/IFAS), the Flip My Florida Yard (FMFY) television series is seeking one Florida Public School who want help “flipping” a part of the school property to a Florida-Friendly landscape.

The FMFY team will work with the selected school to determine how to flip your landscape, develop a landscape design and bring it to life. This may involve replacing plant beds, installing irrigation systems and/or rethinking your current maintenance practices, using the nine principles of Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ (FFL): right plant, right place; water efficiently; fertilize appropriately; mulch; attract wildlife; manage yard pests responsibly; recycle yard waste; reduce stormwater runoff; and protect the waterfront.

To learn more or sign up to be considered for season two, visit Want Your Yard Flipped? – Flip My Florida Yard and select the link for Florida Public Schools Wanting To Be Flipped

You may also submit an Application of Intent for the Florida Green School Designation Program.

DEP has partnered with UF/IFAS for over two decades and provided grant funding to administer the successful statewide FFL program. Floridians are encouraged to use low-maintenance plants and environmentally sustainable practices to save time, energy and money while protecting the state’s unique environment.
