Organic Gardening Certificate Program
Registration Closed for Spring 2010 OGCP Traning
Comprehensive Training in Organic Gardening
Learn the knowledge and skills of organic gardening, urban agriculture,
and ecological landscaping. This program is similar in scope and scale
to the OSU Extension Service Master Gardener™ Program... with an
organic gardening focus. It utilizes a hands-on and active-learning
format to teach participants about all aspects of growing and caring
for plants without synthesized chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
This 66-hour training was created by OSU Extension, Oregon Tilth, and
other program partners to support the groundswell of interest in
organic gardening, ecological landscaping, and food security in the
Portland metro area.
