Beyond Pesticides Visits UC Berkeley!
In the summer of 2018, Beyond Pesticides and Professional Horticulturist Chip Osborne came to UC Berkeley to train the groundskeepers how to manage the landscape organically. Two pilot sites were started on the two largest green spaces on campus: Memorial Glade and Faculty Glade. In October 2019, Beyond Pesticides and Chip came back to check out how the spaces were doing and meet with the UC Berkeley Grounds staff once again. Some of the methods involved in going organic include compost tea application, ,aeration, and overseeding grass!
