Delaware Cooperative Extension is willing to come to you!
We’d like to make continuing education training as easy as possible for you and your staff. If you have 10 or more people, we will conduct a workshop at your site. Here are the topics we are suggesting for 2016:
Soil Health: Soil improvement is an ongoing process – discover options available to you. This session will cover soil amendments with the emphasis on compost! Instructors: Carrie Murphy, Tracy Wootten
HORT 101: Learn the basics of landscape management. This course is a good starting point in studying for the Certified Nursery Professional exam or a good way to expose new employees to the foundations of landscaping. Instructor: Susan Barton
Sustainable Landscaping: Shift your focus from traditional high-maintenance landscapes to natural, low-maintenance and environmentally sensitive landscapes. Instructor: Susan Barton
Arthropod Abundance: Learn about some management options of the most common arthropods encountered in the landscape, nursery, or greenhouses. Take the time to learn how to I.D. beneficial arthropods from damaging pests and those nuisance or incidental pests. Instructor: Brian Kunkel
Make Your Own Workshop: If there is a topic you want to offer to your staff, contact us and we will try to work with you on developing a workshop that meets your needs.
Cost is $50, plus $10/person. Scheduling is based on availability of the instructor with expertise in the topic you choose. Pesticide and/or nutrient management credits may be available, depending on the course(s) selected. Contact your local County Extension Agent: Carrie Murphy, (302-831-2506), New Castle County and Tracy Wootten, (302-856-7303), Sussex County.
