Recently Cuyahoga County voted to ban lawn pesticides from county-owned property. Beyond Pesticides Ohio will present two free training sessions on why and how to implement an affordable organic turf care program. The session will be introduced by Beyond Pesticides Ohio staff and led by natural turf expert Alec McClennan, President of Good Nature Organic Lawn Care.

Topics include proper soil testing, natural weed control, special needs for playing fields, and the cost benefits of organic turf management.

Sessions are geared towards institutional facilities, school and city grounds managers, public works managers, landscapers, sustainability directors, green team members, businesses, churches, museums, any place that has turf where people, especially children, congregate. Interested citizens also welcome. 

Beyond Pesticides Ohio encourages you to contact your city, school, church, etc to send a representative to this important training session. They will learn how to save money and health by going organic. 

Preregistration is encouraged. Cost: free. Light refreshments provided.
