Starting mid-September, landscape professionals can participate in a 10-week course on the industry’s latest green gardening practices. Classes are available to anyone who works for or owns a landscape maintenance business.
Participants will learn to protect our environment by conserving water, protecting soil, reducing waste and maintaining healthy gardens. The course will cover a variety of topics including healthy pruning, seasonal watering needs, alternative approaches to pest management, protecting air quality with low-emission equipment, installing water efficient irrigation systems, composting plant debris and more!
Course graduates will receive a Santa Clara Valley Green Gardener Card and be listed as a certified Green Gardener. The training will be offered in English beginning on Sept. 13 and in Spanish beginning Sept. 14.
