More than 50 people participated throughout the course sessions, led by experts and professionals in the organic landscaping business. The 30-Hour Organic Land and Lawn Care Course was held on Feb. 24-27, 2020. The 30-Hour training is designed for existing landscaping businesses, landscape workers, property managers, and private/public grounds crew, and others interested in this field, and will be open to the public. Course topics include: ecological soil health, organic fertilizers, mulching, natural pest control, site analysis, organic turfgrass management and lawn alternatives, stormwater management, marketing and more. The course was made possible by a grant from the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute, as funded by the Enviromental Protection Fund, administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
