OK guys, I've decided to put together a little class through our community services program to teach people how to get their lawn on to an organic program (hopefully mine!) I won't be teaching it until March, but the deadline for the winter/early spring catalog is Nov. 1. I've got a couple of questions on this. First, how many sessions do you think it should be? I'm up in the air about how long to make this. Obviously, I will keep it pretty basic so as not to overwhelm people. On that last thought, how far do you think I should go with it? My thoughts are to first go over the basics of what an organic program is and what the difference is between an organic approach vs. synthetic. Then talk about what happens to the soil when it is treated synthetically over a long period of time and then into what the steps are for getting it back in shape. I will also talk about different weeds and how to control them. I can contact Paul Tukey and see about getting a deal on his book(he lives one town over from me) for the participants but I don't really want to promote Safelawns since they have a franchise nearby. I guess at this point what I really need to figure is how long I should make the course so that I can reserve the time and space for it. More questions to follow....!
