The Institute of Applied Agriculture (IAA) will hold a 1-day workshop on Jan. 11, 2017 aimed at opening doors for Latino professionals to successful careers in the green industries. Please share this opportunity with anyone who might be interested in attending.

Workshop participants will attend a sample turfgrass lecture, tour educational facilities, take a practice lab test alongside IAA students who are preparing for the STMA Student Challenge and GCSAA Collegiate Turf Bowl Competition, and hear from successful Latino graduates of the IAA. They will also have the opportunity to apply for grant money to cover all fees for completing the Pesticide Use & Safety course at the IAA during the Spring 2017 semester (a $400 value!). This course is one of three necessary to meet educational requirements for pesticide licensing in Maryland.
