2015 Horticulture Short Courses

UD Cooperative Extension is offering a comprehensive line-up of courses throughout the year. Short courses are designed to give participants up-to-date information and skills that can be applied to what they see and do on the job.   Many classes also offer continuing education credits for Delaware pesticide and/or nutrient management recertification.

New for 2015 is the Landscape 101 series. This series is in direct response to green industry requests for assistance in providing basic information to landscape employees in areas such as:

  • Pruning
