Spring is almost here, and now is the perfect time to prepare for the upcoming gardening and landscaping season. Part of that preparation for landscapers, park managers, and other interested professionals should include natural lawn care, and  a training workshop is scheduled for March 6 at Milwaukee Area Technical College. 

From the information page

“Workshop attendees will learn how to cultivate healthy soils, the building block of a sustainable landscape, manage community and client expectations, and understand the costs of using an organic approach. Attendees will also gain a deeper understanding of the environmental and health impacts associated with conventional landscape management practices. The workshop will place a strong focus on sustainable nutrient use in addition to ways in which to control weeds naturally.”

Registration is open now at the link above. 

The Lawn to Lake program and these workshops are part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
