We will not be doing our Professional Landscape Day this year. With the credit exemption issued through the NC Landscape Contractors Licensing Board, if you attended the whole event last year to earn 7 credits, you do not need to take classes until after July 31, 2021. For those needing credits by July 31, 2021 (didn’t attend last year), you can earn 3 on this day and can find others online or through the NCNLAGreen and Growin’ conference which will be online this year.
