Calling all landscapers, lawn care pros, garden caretakers, park and land trust managers, landscape architects, educators, gardeners, and anyone else who is interested in learning how to care for properties without toxic materials!

This January, the Northeast Organic Farming Association is hosting an accreditation course in Organic Land Care.

Using the most recent 6th (2017) edition of the Organic Land Care Standards as a guide, this course is helpful to anyone who is interested in practical, standards-based organic methods to increase the health of all in our Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Accreditation as an Organic Land Care Professional is available for those completing the course and taking the certification test.

    Thank you so much for your interested training. My comment is only on the registration cost/payment which is $650. It has been found too much for me to join. What option do i have to join the training?

    Alemayehu,

    Do you have a company that you work for through which you offer lawn care or gardening services that might cover the training, or share part of the costs? The training is 3 days and also prepares attendees for their certification test which can be taken at the end of the course, and this certification is valuable to companies offering organic options in their lawn and garden services.

      Alemayehu,

      We just found out that if three or more people sign up together, there is a discounted rate of $550. If you know some others who are interested and sign up together, perhaps that reduced rate would be helpful, too.
