The training cost is $550 for the entire week and includes locally catered, organic lunches. Landscapers who complete the training and pass the exam will be eligible for Organic Land Care accreditation through Oregon Tilth. Thurston County will include accredited professionals on their web site and provide ongoing networking opportunities for local practitioners.
