A 30-hour organic land care accreditation course for land care professionals, designers and environmental educators begins December 8 at PHS. This class provides a well-rounded curriculum for understanding organic land care principles, practices, design and maintenance. Presented in partnership with the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA), the curriculum is based on NOFA’s Standards for Organic Land Care, which extends the vision and practices of organic agriculture to the care of landscapes where we live our daily lives. Upon passing the accreditation exam at the end of the course, students become an Accredited Organic Land Care Professional (AOLCP), which is a marketable credential offering many benefits.

The Philadelphia course features a special Green Stormwater Infrastructure track.
