2018 Grow Green Landscape Professional Training Series

The Grow Green Landscape Professional Training series has been developed with the goal protecting our natural resources by offering Austin residents a list of landscape professionals who can provide sustainable options for landscape design, installation, and care. The training series gives Austin landscape professionals the opportunity to get helpful information to enhance their sustainable landscape services from local businesses, non-profits, and City of Austin professionals.

The program covers many facets of sustainable landscaping that protect water quality and encourage water conservation, recycling, using the right plant in the right place and the least impacted-related way to address pest issues. Some of the talks will qualify for professional continuing education credits.

Attendees from all aspects of the landscape industry are eligible to attend including: Arborists, Garden Coaches, Landscape Designers, Edible Gardens Specialists, Government and Non-profit staff with land management responsibilities, Installers, Irrigators, Landscape Architects, Pest Control Operators and Property Managers

Contractors that complete the training series will have their name and affiliation posted as a Grow Green Landscape Professional.

● New attendees who want to be listed on the Grow Green website are required to attend all 4 days.
● New attendees may also choose to just attend individual days, but will not qualify to be posted.
● Returning attendees are required to attend at least one day of training each year to stay posted.

Registration priority is given to citizens that work for a landscape-related business or organization. Non-landscape professionals are permitted to register on the wait list and will be contacted as space becomes available.


Classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following dates (all Thursdays):

  • January 18: Soil, Trees & Sustainability
  • February 1: Urban Landscapes, Technology & Tools
  • February 15: Rainscaping

Cost: The classes are $20 per day or $75 for the series.

Please note when you register on EventBrite there is a column right before the quantity box that says the class is free. We cannot remove the word FREE from the EventBrite site, so sorry if it is confusing.
