The 10-week training program is designed for landscape maintenance workers, landscape contractors, and professional gardeners. Training in environmentally sustainable gardening practices will include topics like irrigation scheduling, plant placement, and less-toxic pest management techniques.

All gardeners who complete the required hours of attendance and pass the final test will receive a Santa Clara Valley Green Gardener card and certificate of completion.
