Abstract


The Green Industry Best Management Practices program is a University of Florida/IFAS educational approach that provides classroom training to the commercial landscape industry. The 6-hour course consists of five modules that educate landscape workers on how to conserve and protect water resources by integrating Green Industry Best Management Practice concepts into their daily working routines. To complement the classroom teaching, University of Florida/IFAS Extension educators offered a separate landscape training field day. The field day is sponsored once a year in January and consists of four “education stations” designed to transfer classroom theory into real world learning experiences
by providing hands-on training.
