Supervisory Registration Certificate- General Use
(All day)

New Hampshire requires that anyone applying pesticides commercially must be certified as a commercial pesticide applicator. This certification is required regardless of whether the applicator gets paid for the service or whether the pesticide would be classified as general use, including over the counter home owner type pesticides, or restricted use.

 

To be eligible for this Supervisory Registration Certificate a person needs to have completed 8 hours of general use instruction (core training). In order for an individual to obtain this new certification they need to participate in a series of training classes, pass a written exam and an oral board, plus show proof of insurance.

 

This instruction is intended to be a review of the information found in the Pesticide Safety Education Program study core manual and the Turf (G2) and/or the Right of Way (B) categories. It is advised that participants purchase and read manuals prior to attending the sessions. Also attending these courses does not guarantee passing the State Certification Exam.

Seed Saving for the Home Gardener
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

By saving seed from your home vegetable or flower garden, you can help maintain genetic biodiversity, perpetuate heirloom varieties, or even develop your own unique variety through controlled pollinations. Seed saving can also be simply a fun way to grow your own seeds for next year's garden. Whatever your motivation may be, an understanding of the biology and science of seed production will help ensure that your efforts result in a harvest of quality seed. Amy Papineau, UNHCE Field Specialist, Food & Agriculture, will discuss the basics of growing plants for seed, seed extraction and collection methods, and specifics for many common garden plants through hands-on demonstration.

Identifying Late Season Grasses
(08:30 AM - 03:30 PM)

This workshop will teach you the skills necessary to identify late-season grasses (Family Poaceae) and asters (Family Asteraceae) occurring throughout our state. A combination of indoor and outdoor instruction will be used to familiarize you with these two challenging groups. Instruction will focus on understanding and recognizing the unique morphology of these families, mastering much of the terminology of a technical key, and examining in detail local specimens, both in the classroom and in the field. Strategies and suggestions for identification within some of the more difficult members of these groups will also be discussed. All levels of expertise are encouraged to attend. There is one required text for this workshop: "How to Identify Grasses and Grasslike Plants" by H.D. Harrington (Swallow Press, 1977; ISBN-10: 0804007462; ISBN-13: 978-0804007467; approx. $10 through Amazon.com. You should also download at least the key from Robert R. Kowal's "Keys to the Asteraceae of Wisconsin" at http://www.botany.wisc.edu/herbarium/AsteraceaeOfWIintroKeyAppendicesC-G.pdf. Both resources and a hand lens should be brought to the workshop. All other supplies will be provided. (This workshop is part of the Wetland Delineation Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop).
