Event Description

Be prepared for a major shift in paradigms! This is a gardening course, and so much more. Students have called it "life changing" - because once we truly understand the connection between soil health, plant health, human health and environmental health we look at the world with different eyes.

This is our core course. It is a pre-requisite for the Ecological Landscape Design course, and an essential component of the Diploma in Organic Land Care. It is intense - challenging - inspiring, consisting of lectures and hands-on exercises. And it is taking the country by storm!

  • Learn to create fabulous food and ornamental gardens without pesticides and other harmful chemicals
  • Become involved with SOUL (Society for Organic Urban Land Care) and share your knowledge with your community through workshops, talks and other creative ways
  • Gain essential skills to start or enhance your own business in the rapidly growing organic land care industry
  • Prepare to write the SOUL Organic Certification exam for land care professionals
  • Earn generous Continuing Education Credits to maintain your industry certifications (ISA, CNLA, BCSLA, SOUL)

Everyone is welcome. No previous experience required. Just come, learn and have fun. To receive a Certificate of Completion students must attend all sessions and satisfactorily complete all assignments and quizzes.
