New York State law prohibits the use of most pesticides on the fields and grounds of schools and day care centers. To address the need for training in alternatives to conventional pesticides, we are conducting a series of six training courses at various locations across New York State this fall, as well as an online webinar.

This free entry-level training course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of organic land care and pest control using alternatives to conventional pesticides, including soil enrichment, seed selection, horticultural practices and other non-chemical pest and disease management techniques, as well as the use of pesticides allowed under NYS law.

Six DEC recertification credits are available for attending a live course.

Space is limited and reservations for both the live courses and the webinar are required. Please register today!
