We are proud to introduce a fresh batch of budding horticulturists that have taken and passed the Green Industry Training “Nursery Worker Certification”!

While this year’s series was delivered entirely online, it still provided the same foundational horticulture knowledge that included integrated pest management, best pruning practices, insect identification, and turf management, among several other topics.

Congratulations to all and we’re already looking forward to next year’s class!
