Certification Info

The New Hampshire Landscape Association offers a voluntary Certification Program for landscape professionals in New Hampshire. The purpose of the program is to increase industry professionalism through further education. Certified members must have worked in the industry for at least three years and have to pass a rigorous exam based on a manual of study and plant identification. To maintain Certification, members need to attend educational conferences and workshops each year.

In early September 2010 the NHCLP's visited the native gardens at the Pinkham Notch Visitors Center and the new roof top garden  on top of the Mount Washington hotel. A beautiful day and meal was enjoyed by NHCLP's and their guests.
