E course horticulture to become a certified arborist by the American Society of Arborists (ASA) at the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

“It is such a great honor to have been selected,” said Loe. “I will be graduating next spring, and my first job will be working at the USDA-ARS in the Fruit and Nut Program at the Wye Research Center in Harbeson, Pennsylvania. I am excited to be able to share my knowledge in the classroom to students who are interested in this career path.”

This year, the USDA will offer the Certified Green Tech Professional (CGT) program to help develop a career path for students and for industry partners.

“The CGT program helps to develop skilled workers in the horticulture industry and is a pathway for workers to obtain certification in Horticulture, Landscape Construction, Arboriculture and more,” said USDA-ARS Associate Deputy Administrator Dr. Bruce M. Geller. “The program is a great opportunity to provide the next generation of horticulture professionals with training that can prepare them for employment with our nation’s tree and shrub care programs and to continue the valuable work being done at the Wye Research Center in Harbeson.”

An introductory course on “green-tech careers and sustainability in horticulture,” is being offered for the first time this fall to the general public. The course will be taught in cooperation with the USDA-ARS. It will be offered at the USDA-ARS Research Station in Harbeson, Pennsylvania. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about the CGT program and the career pathways available to the profession.

The classes are part of the USDA’s National Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) week, the first-ever federal effort to highlight careers in STEM fields as a way to attract more students to careers in the STEM fields. STEM week is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Science Board and the National Science Foundation.

The National Science Foundation is a partner in the CGT training program. The foundation supports and encourages research to solve important problems and to bring research results to life in ways that increase human knowledge, human understanding, and the well-being of people throughout the world.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service sponsors the training programs for all classes taught by Wye instructors. The department is the primary source of employment in Pennsylvania for more than 21,000 people. The department's research and extension programs are key partners in agricultural and forestry production and productivity, natural resources conservation and restoration, community and rural development, and sustainable forestry. USDA Forest Service employees represent a diverse group of people committed to protecting, enhancing, and utilizing natural resources. To fulfill their responsibilities, employees provide professional land, water, and air resource management. They also conduct research on a broad range of forest, rangeland, aquatic, and wildlife resources. These professionals also serve communities by providing information on living, working, and playing on public lands. Forest Service partners include academic institutions, industry, tribes, local, state, and federal governments, and non-governmental organizations.
