UMass Extension's 2014 Green School, a comprehensive 12-day certificate short course for Green Industry professionals taught by UMass faculty and Extension Specialists, is now accepting registrations. Students choose a "specialty track" when registering; three different track options are offered: Turf Management, Landscape Management and Arboriculture. Green School students come away with the knowledge needed to make environmentally appropriate and agronomically sound turf management decisions.
This popular bi-annual course, offering 60 hours of training, is designed for turf and landscape professionals who wish to gain a basic understanding of horticulture fundamentals and strategies, but who can't fit a full academic course into their schedules. Green School runs October 29 - December 11, 2014, twice a week from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Marlborough, MA.
For complete program information and registration instructions, refer to our Green School page.
The registration deadline is October 24, or until classes are full. Space is limited, so apply early.
