Do you have questions about organic landscaping? Are you a professional facing pressure to stop the use of synthetic fertilizers, and pesticides like glyphosate, 2,4-D and neonicotinoids? Do you want to be able to offer organic services but don't know where to start? Our panelists present their successes and solutions that take us beyond the synthetic paradigm to a new way of viewing landscapes as a biological system to nurture and support.
