Join Us for a Free Seminar
Thursday, May 9th @ 10:30 a.m.
Location: 627 Route 1, York, Maine (in the Eldredge Building)
Chip Osborne – a professional horticulturist with 45 years of experience in the green industry – will be our speaker. In the mid-1990’s his extensive horticultural background was broadened to include turf grass management. Chip has been transitioning sports and recreational turf for twenty years.
He is a NOFA accredited Land Care Professional. He is on the board of Directors of Beyond Pesticides in Washington DC. In 2007 he founded Osborne Organics, a company that provides organic turf and landscape consulting services and education on a national level to universities, business, municipal, and institutional clients.
Chip will, in his presentation, discuss compelling reasons why we should consider a natural approach to lawn care such as public health, children’s health, storm water runoff, and water quality issues.
Chip’s approach will be to share the mission of pesticide reduction and elimination by “Awareness through Education” programs.
Don’t miss these informational and educational “Simple Steps to Organic Lawn Care” which will be outlined and explained in a common sense approach. It’s a threefold systems approach that Chip has developed after years of study. It’s a program for the do-it-yourselfer or the lawn care & contractor landscaper.
Light refreshments will be served.
Space is limited, so please make reservations

Light refreshments will be served.
What Are Our Attendees Saying?
Thank you once again for a wonderful, interesting and enlightening seminar. Paul Burlingame was so informative and passionate about organic chocolate and seemed to enjoy every minute of his sharing with us. Shall think of him whenever I might be tempted to indulge in the lesser chocolate – anything that is not organic. Do plan to give some cacao buds for Valentine’s Day. Thank you to you & Eldredge Lumber for this wonderful no-cost day of education & fun. Have a great Valentine’s Day.Gail
I just wanted to thank you for your efforts in bringing interesting and informative seminars to Atlantic Design Center. Your speakers are well versed and enjoyable. Keep up the good work.Mary MacLean
Thank you so much for the marvelous variety of presentations you’ve arranged for our community. I’m a newcomer to York but so far I have thoroughly enjoyed the Orchid and the A. Armstrong music seminar last Saturday.Lilane McGee

I will be attending your Gilding Seminar and am truly looking forward to it. I attended your flower arranging class and loved it!! This will also give me an opportunity to shop at Eldredge which I always enjoy.
I hope you continue your fine work of bringing talented artists to present their skills, knowledge and advice. It brings our community together, provides an opportunity to learn something new and share an enjoyable time with friendly people.
Also the raffle you hold to help the Coastal Clovers 4-H Club provides attendees with an opportunity to support a very worthwhile organization. The prizes you offer the lucky winners are things they can take home and really enjoy.

Thank you for a fabulous and informative lecture. I learned a lot. Dennis was very personable and very prepared. What a pleasure. The sautéed mushroom dish was delicious as well and a treat.
I sautéed the mushrooms which I purchased last night with an organic piece of steak. They were phenomenal. I can’t wait to visit the farm sometime this winter. I will become a customer for sure.

My friends and I enjoyed the seminar on Thursday very much. Brigitte was an exceptional speaker and I absolutely love the e-cloth. I bought the 8 pack and have been using it all over my house with amazing results. I think it’s wonderful that you and Atlantic Design Center run these seminars!
Thank you again for the informative lecture today. There was a lot of good info to keep in mind. Your generous contribution to the community is appreciated.Jean Ciarametaro
It was a wonderful seminar. He (Thomas Berger) is such a professional, a delight to listen to. Thanks for this informative afternoon.Kay Rogan Moore
Terrific lawn care related seminar. Speakers were very generous with their information and time. Five stars out of five stars. Thank you.Susan
Please know that all the hard work you obviously do to present these free seminars to the community, is greatly appreciated. From the notification in advance, to the wonderful topics and presenters, the great food, sense of community, question and answers and, above all, your smiling and warm welcome. Eldredge must and should be very proud of you. We have learned so much over the last few annual seminar periods. We have attended nearly all since we first discovered them and were very sad to have to miss the couple we did….like the chocolate and cookie ones. And how clever you are…such a great way to bring us all to Eldredge to shop. I live in Ogunquit and truly appreciated the seminar on organic lawn care. The staff were very informative and supportive. They gave me the encouragement to do my own lawn and we will be at your door from the time we take a sample of soil next spring, to the purchasing of all the needed supplies to bring our lawn and garden back to life, in a healthy, organic way. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
We would love for you, Ms Claesson, to share this email with the “Powers -to-be” at Eldredge. Without you, this wouldn’t be the tremendous success it is.
We have met new friends through this seminar, learned more about the community, met staff at Eldredge we didn’t know and even found the right tiles for our bathroom renovation while we were there.
Although we are unable to attend this up and coming seminar, we look forward to the next, and the next, and so on. Thank you again for all you do. It surely does not go unnoticed. See you soon.
