Trade publications for professional landscapers are helping spread the work about the free training material the Western IPM Center created to help protect water sources from pesticide contamination.
In the past week, both Landscape Management and Green Industry Pros, two of the top trade publications in the industry, have published stories about the training material and links to the slide sets.
Since mid-May, the training modules have been downloaded by folks in Montana, Hawaii, New York, Iowa, Florida, Pennsylvania, Washington state and Washington D.C., California, Idaho, Wisconsin and Oregon.
Thanks to everyone who has helped spread the word. The three slide sets, focused at professional landscapers, ag users or home gardeners, can be downloaded at www.wripmc.org. Look under the Useful Resources heading.
