Chip Osborne of Osborne Orgaincs will be presenting his Systems Approach to Natural Turf Management which integrates three concepts: the use of natural, organic products as dictated by soil testing; an understanding of the soil and its biomass; and sound cultural practices.

Jan. 17, 2012 at the NJ Landscape Contractors Association headquarters in Elmwood Park, NJ.
Jan. 18, 2012 at the Rutgers EcoComplex in Bordentown, NJ.
4 NOFA credits will be awarded each day.

Tim Boyle from the NJ DEP will also speak both days on how to comply with the NJ School IPM law. NJ pesticide credits have been applied for.

Classes run from 8AM to 3PM. Each day is $100.00 including lunch.
The seminars are organized by Tech Terra Environmental and preregistration is required.

Chip Osborne's http://osborneorganics.com/ classes are filling up, especially Jan 18 in Bordentown, or you could attend the half day classes offered by Rutgers at more than twice the price taught by people with little experience in organic turf management. :)

Are there any classes scheduled beyond those two dates? This is something I would like to learn more about and those fees are definitely not the norm. Sounds like a real good opportunity.
