Colorado State University Extension’s Certified Colorado Gardener program has moved to an online format, informally known as Green School, and is now accepting applicants.
Registrants may choose from either the full course or multiple short course options. The full course includes 12 online, self-paced classes, two live webinars, weekly class reviews and access to course content for one year.
Topics include soils, fertilizers and amendments; botany; the science of planting trees and care of woody plants; lawn care and turfgrass management; weed management; Colorado gardening challenges; entomology; integrated pest management and plant diagnostics; and plant pathology.
Participants who complete the full course will become CSU certified Colorado gardeners.
Fifty percent of all revenue from the full course is donated to horticulture programming in Colorado counties.
Need-based scholarships and bulk registrant discounts are available. No previous gardening experience is required to register.
