Safe Use of Pesticides & Alternatives (MGCC)

We always prefer gardeners avoid chemical interventions, whether they are synthetic, organic, or homemade.  If you do decide to use them, you must use them safely.  Just because they are organic does not necessarily mean they are safe for people, pets, or beneficial insects.  Safe and intelligent control practices will minimize harm to both you and the environment.  This course covers organic and synthetic pesticide formulations, toxicity, persistence, labeling and safety practices.

NOTE: It is recommended to have taken Garden Fundamentals prior to taking this course. 

MGCC denotes Master Gardener Core Course.

A $20 administrative fee for a full-day class, or a $10 administrative fee for a half-day class, will be charged if notice to withdraw is received up to one week before the class starts. No refunds will be processed after this time. Non-attendance does not constitute notice of withdrawal and a refund will not be issued.
