REPORTING: RABBIT ZIELKE
The University of Tennessee Extension Office in Hamilton County is offering certification classes in the Tennessee Yards and Neighborhoods program. This 6 hour workshop features information on landscaping, maintenance, and tips on how to develop a sustainable environmentally friendly lawn. Once you complete the course and incorporate specific measures in your own lawn and garden, you will be eligible for the certificate and a lawn sign proclaiming this accomplishment.
The Tennessee Yards and Neighborhoods certification is a nice alternative to the Master Gardeners classes. The Yards and Neighborhoods classes provide environmentally friendly landscape management that saves money and protects natural resources.
Classes are broken into 2 sessions. The first class runs April 19 and 20. There will also be a class May 11 and 13. You must pre-register for the workshop. Call the UT Extension office at (423) 855-6113 for more details.
