So I decided after 22 yrs in the nail industry-I was fed up with people and knew my brain was not getting used as much as I knew it was capable of so I went home ‘sick’ early from the shop and attended the home and garden show where I saw a cool display which lead me to grab a brochure. I looked into this ‘training center’ and read it was free (like legit no cost) and set the appt up for the beginning stages of several interviews and testing process to enroll. I missed the cut off of the class(20 per class) they were getting ready to begin and had to wait until the next session which began the end of January. A seven month class with a four externship after to complete the course. I had six months to financially get my shit together because I was about to quit my job (the training only allowed a two day absence, and it was mon-fri 8a-3p and each minute counted. I wanted to fully commit) and take a ginormous leap into something that had piqued my interest, but I had no idea the training they provided was as extensive as it was. Allow me to share this entire experience with you, please. It was life changing (but also because I was ready for a change). I’m gonna share class time, commute, our field trips (which were once a week, usually) and all that was learned and lived through during this time. I leaned more about myself and people and our connection and our ability to adapt from learning about a plant. What I plan to get from this thread is a knowledgeable exchange of plant information. Credible, Reliable sources and your tried and true experiences are greatly appreciated. It seems a lot of people do not wanna share their tips and tricks and knowledge these days but I believe that plant knowledge is so crucial to us as humans we should be eager to share and accept another’s knowledge. I’ll post the course outline so you get an idea of what was taught. What I want from you is anything plant related. Plants, trees, insects, disease and how to control them. Flowers. Common names. Scientific names. Indoor/ outdoor gardens. Greenhouses. Hydroponics. Design (landscape and garden). Your native and invasive plants and animals. Cultivation tips.....you get it.
