Sustainable Landscape Management

To foster and prolong the growth of the Green Industry in Massachusetts, the Sustainable Landscape Management project teaches integrated pest management practices and environmental stewardship strategies to municipal and private landscape professionals, nursery growers and home gardeners. Participants learn to be responsive to client horticultural problems and to find workable short and long term solutions to pressing problems. Participants also focus their role as environmental stewards on reducing negative environmental impact by using best management practices.
