The University of Florida/Volusia County Extension will offer Green Industries Best Management Practices training from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, at the Agricultural Center, 3100 E. New York Ave., DeLand.  

This science-based program for lawn-care and landscape maintenance professionals will teach environmentally safe landscaping practices that help conserve and protect Florida’s ground and surface waters. Participants will learn what impact the best management practices will have on their business or municipality.

Developed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and endorsed by the pest control industry, this training is provided by the University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Florida-Friendly Landscaping program.

Participants who are seeking certification for the first time must take pre- and post-tests. Those who are attending the class solely to earn continuing education units (CEUs) do not need to take the tests; they will receive a certificate of completion and up to two core and two category pesticide CEUs.

Registration and payment must be completed by Aug. 30 at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/volusia-county-green-industries-best-management-practices-tickets-67293720329. The $30 fee includes morning refreshments, lunch and take-home materials.
