    "The votes are in, and our marketplace is changing.

    I've been on a "whistle stop" tour recently consulting with and educating municipalities, private organizations, and advocates in the Systems Approach to Natural Turf Management.

    My travels in the last two weeks alone have had taken me from Massachusetts to California, North Carolina to Delaware and it's clear that organic lawn care is winning on a national scale.

    What started as a "grassroots" campaign is now a widespread movement backed by all demographics with a desire for non-chemical strategies in lawn and landscape management.

    Because you have the power to bring about real change in our industry, I'm asking you to attend one of my upcoming two-day training events in the Systems Approach to Natural Turf Management.

    Your attendance qualifies you for the exam to become an Organic Lawn Care Accredited Professional (OLCAP). This designation is fast becoming the industry standard.

    View our training schedule here.

    Join me at the forefront of change as we take our industry into the future!

    I'm Chip Osborne, from Osborne Organics, and I approve this message. :)

    PS - It's not too late to take advantage of early bird registration discounts for many of our scheduled events around the country."

    Is this only on cool season grass? I live in Florida so I wanted to have an idea of what will be discussed and will it be beneficial to me? I want to hit the market running with organics but I know it will take learning.

    Yes the focus was on cool season grass. However the fundamentals of how organic methods work remain the same. It was a good class.

    Does anyone know how long, after passing the exam, it takes to get the certificate of accreditation?
