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!

Our Unique Programs

Holistic practices require knowledge of the natural processes upon which all life depends. Therefore the information presented in our programs is highly integrated, reflecting the integration of natural systems and processes.

To facilitate this paradigm shift we have developed our own comprehensive instructional materials, guiding students step-by step towards a new understanding of how nature works.

Students will be able to apply this knowledge in diverse situations, ranging from ornamental horticulture to small scale food production and environmental stewardship.

Our programs are designed to

  • Assist current professionals in their transition to sound environmental practices
  • Enable new students to become knowledgeable professionals in their fields of study
  • Provide a cooperative learning environment for the expression of ideas and knowledge
  • Be widely and easily accessible
