Thank you so much Heide, for your advice on this matter and also for the fabulous programs you have compiled.  The OMG really sparked my passion for gardening/landscaping into full flame.  I look forward to meeting you one day. The OMG has provided me with a new way to 'dig' my work, a challenging way to look at our whole industry.  I think this "Shifting Paradigm" is timely and necessary for those of us who love and honor Mother Earth!

What is Organic Land Care?

Organic land care is the design, installation and maintenance of landscapes to promote and preserve environmental health both above and below ground.

These practices arise from the understanding that all organisms in nature are interdependent, and in order to have healthy plants we must foster the health of their entire ecosystem.

Organic land care practices go beyond integrated pest management, beyond the use of so-called organic fertilizers and pesticides. They acknowledge the concept of intrinsic health, and seek to create environments that cater to the well-being of all their inhabitants.

Organic land care professionals know that they are but stewards of the land, and can at best hope to work WITH nature, never to dominate it.
