The Georgia Green Landscape Stewards Program, created by University of Georgia Extension, is a certification program for businesses and residences in Georgia. Our goal is to provide fact-based information to clientele and help them implement sustainable green practices in their landscape. Georgia landowners have a large impact on natural resources, such as water, wildlife, and native plants. With sustainable land management practices, we can help protect these natural resources for generations to come.
After learning about sustainable land management practices, participants can measure their own activities with the program metric scorecard and earn certification status for their landscape.
These programs are designed as a 5-week series. Attendance at each is encouraged but not required. Registration is requested for each program.
