"Weedology 101: History, Science, Technology & Philosophy of Weeding"

Weedology 101 is an exploration of a topic few are brave enough to tackle. Janine is excited to share her knowledge of the history, science and techniques of weeding, as well as her expertise and experiences with the psychological and spiritual aspects of the task we all love to hate – WEEDING!

Janine Griffiths is (practically) a Florida native who enjoys working with native and Florida-Friendly plants, helping to support wildlife, butterflies and pollinators in their natural habitats as well as created habitats in people’s homes all over Broward, Palm Beach, and north Miami-Dade counties. She is passionate about educating the public about native and Florida-Friendly plants and how to use them effectively in their home landscapes.

Janine is the landscape designer/owner of Green Thumb, Inc., a native and tropical landscape design/install/maintenance and interior plantscape firm in Fort Lauderdale. She is an ISA certified arborist, FNGLA horticulture professional, Florida Advanced Master Naturalist, a member of FNPS, and serves on the Florida Association of Native Nurseries board.
