Today was our first class! I'm so impressed with the course material. Lots of substance and no fluff, just the way I like it! We viewed your DVD today on pesticides and it was so clear and concise. Thank you! Tara Qua, Gabriola Island 




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.

"Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace."
Albert Schweitzer
