The Organic Land Care Diploma Program through Gaia College is one of the best I have ever had the priveledge to teach. The way the classes are presented make the science behind growing a garden very clear, and allows you to understand what is really going on in your garden.
There are four classes in this program. The first is the Organic Master Gardener Course. This covers the basics of the science, and leads to a much deeper understanding of the applications of science in your garden. The second class is a Growing Organic Food Course. This class is more of a hands on class, with activities centered around real life growing of food using Organic principles. The third class in the series is a Plant Knowledge Class. This will further a student's knowledge of plants and their place in plant communities, and make designing and planning a garden easier and more accurate. The fourth class is Ecological Landscape Design. This class will further a student's knowledge in the actual planning and design process with full consideration of Organic and Ecological Principles.
I am willing to teach the courses in the Organic Land Care Diploma at any location that there is sufficient demand, although prices may vary to cover some travel expenses. If you can gather 15 people who might want to take one or all of these courses please contact me to discuss the details.
I also teach in the Red Seal Horticulture Apprenticeship Program. I have taught the entire Level 1 Program, and parts of level 2. I am also available to teach these anywhere in Canada with sufficient notice.
