'Quarry to Jobsite' Hosted by LandCare Associates
Wednesday, 08/02/2017 (04:30 PM - 06:30 PM)

 

Starting with a walk through the yard, and a quick show and tell about all the varieties of stone available for landscaping, masonry and building, we will feature August ‘Augie’ DeLuca from Rockridge Quarries in Montrose, PA. Augie will present a slideshow and tell us how they produce their large sized, precision-cut bluestone with state-of-the-art quarry and manufacturing processes. From the multi-ton blocks that come out of the mountain, it will be a great opportunity to see the finished products that make up the thermal, irregular sheets of large format patio stone and the precision-cut dimensional bluestone. With over 30 different kinds of wall stone, flag stone, and decorative round garden stone, you’ll see and hear about their New England and Northeast origins and the quarries that produce them. You will also see multiple displays of pavers and hardscape features for both installers and homeowners.

 

This twilight meeting is for professionals and is co-sponsored by NH Landscape Association.

 

A BBQ will be provided, so please RSVP to Shawn Simoneau at ssimoneau@landcareassociates.com, or call 603-743-3559.

Supervisory Pesticide Applicator Registration Certificate - General Use Training: Core
Tuesday, 09/12/2017 (08:30 AM - 05:00 PM)

UNH Cooperative Extension will host a series of all-day training workshops in September 2017 for those seeking a supervisory registration certificate - general use from the state’s Division of Pesticide Control. Individuals wishing to obtain this certification need to participate in a series of training classes, pass a written and oral exam, and show proof of insurance.

Training will prepare participants for the state certification exam. Instructors will provide a review of the information found in the National Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual and NH Code of Administrative Rules during the core classes (you should only attend one of the two core classes; they are both the same). Trainings will be offered for the following categories: turf (G2), ornamental (G1), right-of-way (B), microbial (F8), and forest (C1). The number of recertifcation credits/class will be announced shortly.

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 the pesticide is classified as general or restricted use. This includes over-the-counter homeowner-type pesticides.

Cost: $115 per day. For those who need it, there is an additional cost for study materials, which participants are required to purchase and read prior to attending the sessions.

Participants can register by visiting our website (https://extension.unh.edu/Pesticide-Safety-Education-Program/Register-Supervisory-Registration-Certification-General-Use).

 

Registration will be opened until 09/10/2017.
