The 2013 symposium was a resounding success with 100 attendees from across the state and region. Two educational sessions in the morning covered such topics as the state of the organic industry, ecological landscape management, remediating impact to urban ecosystems, no-fertilizer landscapes, turf grass management, and the importance of top-soil to the health of a landscape.
