I have purchased both of your books and have subscribed to the online text and just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying the materials. I have studied horticulture at the college level and I am a master gardener but your material has answered many nagging questions that I was left with. I also love that you offer online certificates. I am planning to enroll in the certificates when work quiets down. You should be commended for the work you are doing to foster the organic landscaping movement! You are a role model for the gardening world!

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.

"We have a very small number of years left to fail or to succeed in providing a sustainable future to our species."
