EPA Lawn & Garden Page

EPA's lawn and garden page has resources valuable for teaching consumer pesticide safety and environmentally-friendly pest management methods. This includes a series of videos on effective lawn care methods.

2014 PSEW

This is the 22nd annual pesticide safety education train-the-trainer workshop sponsored by VTPP and VDACS for Extension faculty in Virginia. The workshop is designed to update agents and specialists on pesticide applicator training procedures and practices for 2014-15. This year is the 50th anniversary of VTPP as Virginia Cooperative Extension's pesticide safety education programming unit. It also marks the 125th year of pesticide safety education at a land-grant university, and the 100th anniversary of Cooperative Extension. Long before Cooperative Extension was established, Virginia Tech faculty were conducting Extension education across the commonwealth. The first known pesticide safety educator (nationally) of record was Professor William Bradford Alwood. He was documented teaching members of the Albemarle Fruit & Grape Growers Association, pesticide safety topics (Charlottesville Chronicle, February 15, 1889) in the courthouse square in Charlottesville. So every agent and specialist in our program fills some mighty big shoes as they conduct their work across Virginia. This workshop is funded by the VDACS Office of Pesticide Services. The workshop focuses on enhancing the pesticide safety education programs conducted by Extension and approved by VDACS throughout the next year. The program is approved to recertify agents in Demonstration and Research (Category 10) pest control.
