'Certifying Greener: Florida Water Star, Florida Friendly Landscaping Launch New GOLD Tier
Join St. Johns River Water Management District Water Conservation Coordinator Deirdre Irwin and learn about Florida's new "Gold" standard for water conservation.

Some key takeaways from the Webinar:

An overview of water supply planning and water constraints.

Details of a new partnership between the Florida Water Star program and the UF Florida Friendly Landscaping Program (more than just the certification).

Allow attendees to learn about the new Florida Friendly Water Star Gold certification.

Understand how water quality benefits and plant diversity can be built into a certification program.

The Florida Water Star approach can enhance projects by providing a suite of efficiency practices that focus on ways to reduce water use designed for a Florida lifestyle.

Florida Water Star is a certification program for new homes and commercial buildings that use less water in landscapes, irrigation systems and indoors. A Florida Water Star-certified home saves money, water and benefits Florida’s environment.

Since 1993, Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ (FFL) has served as the state of Florida’s premier Extension program that promotes sustainable alternatives to “conventional” landscaping, providing guidance on low impact, environmentally friendly, science-based landscape practices that use less water and reduce pollutant loading to Florida waters.
