Big winner in Halifax Country Flower Show plants gardening passions in others
Oceanside Country Club, Moore earned the Catherine Beattie Medal, which values a plant’s vibrancy, prime condition and perfection of grooming; the Clarissa Willemsen Horticulture Propagation Award, showcasing a plant in prime condition with flawless grooming that’s difficult to grow; and the Rosie Jones Horticulture Award, featuring a plant of exceptional visual appeal that reflects the spirit of growing with joy and enthusiasm.“It’s the competition; it’s not really about winning,” Moore said. “And also, being able to educate people about how much fun plants can be. You can go out and see a flower and say, ‘Ah, this is gorgeous,’ then you feel good because this flower looks so beautiful.”Moore said she likes “weird” plants — ones you wouldn’t normally see, like Pachypodium, native of Madagascar, for which she earned the Catherine Beattie Medal.On a different table, a blue ribbon winner of Moore’s features a variety of succulents planted intricately into a piece of wood, which Moore said is a base she challenges herself with.“I go to different lumber yards, and sometimes I’ll find just little pieces of wood thrown around,” Moore said. “But it has to either be hard wood or an old piece of cypress or an old piece of red wood because those don’t rot.”After finding wood that meets her standards, she sits it down in her home and leaves it there for months at a time before using it for her gardening.She said that eventually, she’ll walk by the piece of wood and just suddenly know what she wants to make of it — a master gardener’s instinct.Moore said educating the public about gardening is part of why she loves the pastime.“I think children need to get more involved in gardening,” she said. “Obviously, school gardens are a big help because it teaches children where plants come from and what they should eat versus what not. And also, we teach people how not to use pesticides, not to overwater, there’s a lot involved with plants; it’s not just growing.”...Feb 3, 2017

West side Winter Parkers get free energy efficient upgrades
Woodard has already seen an average savings of 13 percent on her utility bills, said Winter Park Spokesperson Clarissa Howard.
“Sometimes [electric bills] get almost unaffordable, but with the insulation and the work that was done, it helped us tremendously,” Woodard said. “That’s what we’re looking for: to save whenever we can.”
But homeowners weren’t the only one to benefit. Five churches also received various improvements, including LED lights to replace their incandescent bulbs – another way to save.
Churches that were helped include Bethel Baptist Church, Flowers Temple and Annex, New Fellowship Church of God, Ward Chapel and Mt. Moriah Baptist Church. Welbourne Avenue Nursery was also given improvements of their own.
Winter Park and the Orange Audubon Society plan to monitor money and energy savings over the next year to see how much the improvements have made a difference.
