Thursday, January 27, 2022

This online program runs Thursdays from 2:30PM to 4:30 PM, January 27, 2022 through April 14, 2022.

This 10-week class will provide you with the knowledge to:

o    Water according to the needs of the season, the plant, and site soil conditions
o    Prune selectively and properly to compliment the natural form and needs of the plant
o    Use alternative approaches such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques, before turning to pesticides and herbicides
o    Help protect air quality by using hand-powered equipment or fuel-efficient, low-emission equipment
o    Check soil for fertility, texture, and moisture
o    Use compost and mulch to feed the soils naturally
o    Install water efficient irrigation systems and regularly maintain them
o    Compost plant debris and grass-cycle
o    Use local plant varieties that are California natives or adapted to our Mediterranean climate and not invasive species

In order to receive the certificate you must attend at least 80% of the classes and pass a final exam. Upon passing you will be identified as a Santa Clara Valley Green Gardener and will receive free advertising and promotional referrals to clients seeking “Green” or sustainable landscaping services.
