BCRPA Spring Training is Here!
February 20-21, 2013 Sheraton Guildford Hotel, Surrey
Spring Training offers two days of educational opportunities for parks and grounds professionals. There is a Horticulture Day and a Maintenance Day, each with education sessions, keynote speakers, and a trade show.
Speaker Highlight: Organic Solutions to Landscape Pest Problems
Presenter: Heidi Hermary
Working without pesticides requires a full commitment to problem prevention. Learn how to create lasting health in the landscape instead of fighting pests and diseases.
Heidi is a self-employed organic landscaper living on Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. She has a diverse practice in Landscape Design, Installation, Consultation, Maintenance and Education, through which she designs and installs gardens as small as postage-stamp-sized urban backyards and as big as 10-acre rural estates. Examples of her work have been featured on the CBC "Canadian Gardener" television show with David Tarrant (a Canadian gardening celebrity). She is also one of the founders and past chair of the Society for Organic Urban Land Care (SOUL).
