Organic Lawns & Landscapes workshop 8/12 with Chip Osborne

Landscapers are invited to learn organic methods by delving into practical problem solving with Chip Osborne, at the “Organic Lawns & Landscapes” workshop, on Friday, August 12 from 8am to Noon at UMass Amherst, Amherst, MA (Campus Center Room 904-908), with nationally renowned organic turfgrass expert and educator, Chip Osborne, in conjunction with the NOFA Summer Conference.

Practical skills and problem solving will be the focus of these four-hour intensive workshops. Beginning with an overview of the systems approach to organic landscaping; soil testing; soil amendments; managing nutrition; grass types; and compost tea, Osborne will then delve into practical solutions for real-life landscape problems. Case study examples will be explored in depth within small groups, with the goal of boosting students’ hands-on knowledge of organic lawns and landscaping and how to transition to organic management with success, cost-efficiency and grace.
