Does anyone know of any Certificates for Organic Lawn Care that can be done online? Or is there any Seminars going on in the near future that pertain to Organic Lawn Care?

Thanks.

I don't suppose you would be interested in traveling to New England this winter for 5 day classes?

I have no idea how much weight this program carries, if any at all.

Yeah, they do look interesting and not that expensive. The 100 per assignment evaluation is a little overpriced IMO. I doubt I can get tuition reimbursed with the economy the way it is :)

I don't believe there is any "certificate" for Organics that is officially recognized. I took the 5 day NOFA OLC course, and it was explained that if you passed you would be an accredited Organic Land Care professionals, not certified, as an official standard for organics doesn't exist yet.

FOL, I would look up TREEGAL, who posts here, she offers organic classes. I don't believe she has certificates but I know you'll leave knowing a lot more about organics.

The more the merry, the next time you are offering any classes in the future let me know Treegal1. Also Treegal1, how come you are not offering organic lawn care as a service?

That is to short of a notice, I do appreciate it though Treegal1. When are you offering the next discussion/class? And where is Jensen, Fl? I googled it and it gave me a street in Avon Park. If im correct Jensen is on the east coast, north of Cocoa.

It says nothing though on your website about OLC, thats why I was asking.
