Society Of Organic Urban Land Care Professionals (SOUL)

SOUL, the Society for Organic Urban Land Care

a) to provide a clear definition of the practices and products employed in Organic Land Care;
b) to lay down the minimum requirements Certified Organic Land Care Professionals must fulfill in the provision of Organic Land Care;
c) to provide guidance to the practitioners of Organic Land Care in their decision making processes;
d) to raise the awareness of the ecological requirements of urban landscapes;
e) to provide credibility for the Organic Land Care industry and to protect the public from misleading practices and claims.
This Standard is not intended to provide all the information needed for successful Organic Land Care. Such information must be obtained through formal education and practical experience.

Standards for Organic Land Care: Practices for Design and Maintenance of Ecological Landscapes

The Organic Land Care Committee of the Connecticut and Massachusetts chapters of Northeast Organic Farming Association have made available the first comprehensive Standards for Organic Land Care. The Standards go far beyond how to grow an organic lawn. They present a philosophy of ecological stewardship in designing and maintaining landscapes. Over 60 pages long, the Standards are the result of more than two years' work by landscape professionals, scientists and citizen activists. The Organic Land Care Committee was formed in 1999 to extend the vision and principles of organic agriculture to the care of the landscapes where most people live, work, and carry out their daily lives.

Incredible online 70-667 vce training programs & exam 70-682 help you in pass 70-648 vce regarding mcts 70-562. We also offer best quality exam 70-432 dumps for your success.

Copies of the Standards for Organic Land Care are available for $20 plus $3 shipping and handling. If you would like more than 9 copies, note that there is a price break - 10 or more copies cost $12.50 each plus $3 shipping.
