Michael BaefskyA primary focus of our Integrated Pest Management & Plant Health Care workshops is health and safety on the ground. University based research is incorporated into curriculum that considers how to maintain safe and healthy working conditions while solving plant problems that require environmental interventions. We don’t just teach people how to kill organisms that they don’t like or their supervisors tell them to get rid of, we create hands on exercises that teach thinking and doing skills about the least toxic methods.

One of our specialties is developing and facilitating hands-on, interactive group based workshops. Activities are fun and and build shared skills. We use basic and some slightly more complicated tools and methods to demonstrate ecological thinking and deepen knowledge about the “why” and the “how to”. As we tired of putting on classes and seminars that people were barely awake for, we realized that putting real tools into people’s hands had a transforming affect on their thinking and doing.
