Get yourself and your staff up to speed on home and garden pests, pesticides and resources to consult when customers’ pest questions arise! This hands-on workshop, co-sponsored by UC IPM and CANGC, is designed especially for retail nursery and garden center employees, managers, owners, and affiliates. View the agenda.
Participants will gain new skills to better serve customers and keep them coming back! Participants will learn about Integrated Pest Management (IPM), pest identification, and how they can direct customers to less toxic pest management tools, both chemical and non-chemical, sold in stores.
Your $40 registration fee includes a set of the popular Landscape Pest Identification cards, lunch, a training certificate, and take home materials.
Send a few, train many! The workshop will be a "train-the-trainer" seminar. That means attendees will receive materials so they can go back to their stores and train others on what they learned.
Don't miss this opportunity! Registration deadline is 5:00 pm on Monday, October 22.
