North Georgia Landscape, Turf Clinic Oct. 23

To meet the growing need for landscape training, University of Georgia Extension Service agents in Hall County have scheduled the North Georgia Landscape and Turf Clinic Oct. 23 in Oakwood, Ga.

The program is an update for commercial landscape and turf employees. UGA faculty and other experts will address such topics as pesticide safety, annuals and perennials, turf diseases, new turf herbicides, urban tree care, water issues and insects of ornamentals and trees.

The clinic will be on the Gainesville College campus at 3820 Mundy Mill Road (Hwy. 53), just off I-985 in Oakwood. A $15 fee covers all costs. Participants will also get four hours of pesticide re-certification credit in Category 24.
