September 27, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Re:wild Your Campus’s Green Grounds Certification offers a new pathway for schools to reduce synthetic pesticide usage and implement organic grounds maintenance practices. This webinar will guide participants through the certification process and will address common questions around certification. The webinar will also feature several leaders in the space, including Shannon Britton of Seattle University who will talk about her years of experience managing Seattle University, which is being certified at the Platinum level of the Green Grounds Certification. Additionally, Eric O’brien from University of Northern Iowa will give insight into what efforts to improve landscape practices look like at a school that is just starting its journey towards more ecologically sounds landcare practices. UNI is applying to be certified at the Bronze level, and Eric will talk about what practices they are implementing to achieve this level, and how the certification helped to bridge gaps on campus between anti-pesticide advocates and grounds crews. Sean Breckin will provide an overview of what it looks like to partner with a third party to implement organic land care on campus grounds. Participants will walk away with the ability to apply for the certification for their campuses and with new insights into how to make their campus grounds safer and healthier for all.
