Green Industry - Best Management Practices Class
Wednesday, April 4, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Tavares, United States
The UF-IFAS Lake County Extension Service office offers classroom training for the Green Industry - Best Management Practices (GI-BMPs.)
The GI-BMPs are a science-based educational program for Green Industry workers (lawn-care and landscape maintenance professionals), brought to you by UF-IFAS Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ program. The GI-BMPs teach environmentally safe landscaping practices that help conserve and protect Florida’s ground and surface waters.
Florida Statute 482.1562 states that all commercial fertilizer applicators must have a license from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) by January 1, 2014. To get this license, each Green Industry worker must be trained in the GI-BMPs and receive a certificate of completion from UF/IFAS and FDEP. Additionally, many non-commercial Green Industry applicators or other workers are required to pass the training by local ordinances or voluntarily participate in the program to better serve their clients.
Class size is limited. Payment of $10.00 can be made online or at the door. Call the UF-IFAS Lake County Extension office at 352.343.4101 extension 2713 or 2714 with questions.
