The City’s Green Garden program has been merged with the City’s Grow Green program to avoid confusion due to similar names and to reach more people with a consolidated website.
This series is now called Grow Green Landscape Professionals Training. The program continues to offer the same high-level of training and professionals who complete the training series will be recognized on the webpage for one year. After completing the entire series, professionals must attend one Grow Green training day per year to maintain their presence on the webpage.
Why has the word certification been taken out of the name?
After evaluating the program, it was determined the classes do not justify the term “Certified.” The City’s Grow Green program does not have the authority to provide landscaping certifications. All of the benefits will remain the same – only the name has changed.
Participants will continue to receive educational classes on a variety of timely topics, recognition on the Grow Green webpage, CEUs, and the right to link to the Grow Green webpage from their businesses websites.
