"Attending the inaugural Green Start Academy in 2006 was a defining moment in my professional development. Interacting with and listening to the distinguished panel of contributors was a great opportunity. The ability to network with similar, driven assistant superintendents only provided greater motivation in my daily work. John Deere and Bayer provided a first-class, fantastic experience that proved to be very beneficial. I recommend applying to Green Start Academy to our current assistant superintendents on an annual basis.”

"I would recommend every assistant apply to be a part of Green Start Academy. The knowledge you gain from industry experts and your peers is invaluable to continued success in the turf industry. The first-class treatment provided by Bayer and John Deere is an added bonus as well. As a past participant, I can truly say that attending Green Start Academy was part of the jump start I needed to now be a superintendent.
