Ten hours of continuing education are required to keep my ornamental and turf commercial pesticide applicators license current during the five year period it is valid. Without these credits the license will expire and I will have to take the test again. Not that that would be much of a strain, but taking the classes is some what enjoyable and it takes me places I haven't been yet.
For the first time I went to a class at the Haywood County Cooperative Extension Center. I had not been down this road before.
The Haywood County Extension office is across the street from the Mountain Research Station.
Who knew a rural state government facility could be so picturesque.
Granted they are trying to educate and set an example. This was one very tidy facility.
Now if they had only had big picture windows in the classrooms across the street, two hours of talk on calibrating pesticide applications and personal and environmental safety precautions would have been even more enjoyable.
