We provide motivational training opportunities for Landscape Industry Professionals, Envionmentalists, Policy Makers and Property Stewards. All of G3′s programs utilize interactive and hands-on, peer-to-peer training.
Landscape industry professionals have an opportunity to expand their careers as G3 Associates (Certified Professionals, Qualified Trainers, Regional Coordinators). G3 Associates work closely with other G3-trained professionals to execute Education, Design, Consulting and Community Action projects:
- G3 Certified Professionals are qualified to lead and manage projects or programs.
- G3 Qualified Trainers are eligible to teach some of the G3 classes and implement Homeowner and Garden Steward Programs in their community.
- G3 Regional Coordinators have budget and management responsibility for all activity in their region.
Educational events and speaking engagements, Hands-on Workshops (HOWs), and Neighborhood Walks connect property stewards with their watershed, reinforcing classroom work with real-time, professionally-led, hands-on experiences creating landscapes that are sustainably designed and thoughtfully installed.

G3 provides consulting services to assist a wide variety of organizations in the development of custom training and communication tools, curriculum, standards, programs, and events. G3 utilizes its network of Certified Professionals to establish teams with regional and functional expertise, uniquely suited to addressing the specific requirements of our geographically-diverse consulting clients.
Through G3′s Voice of the Watersheds (VOW) Project, clients from environmental issues-related organizations transform their presentations into talks that get people talking and taking action. The VOW Project includes customized group workshops and private coaching.
Consulting services are provided on an ad hoc basis through both fixed bid and time-and-materials contracts, depending upon the scope of work.
Our landscape designs are created by carefully selected teams of Certified Professionals to fulfill the requirements of the project design parameters. We rely upon our G3 Associates and Founding Members to create beautiful, functional demonstrations of urban watershed renewal. Our demonstration gardens and projects highlight eco-restorative landscape techniques and promote the principles of low-impact design including: climate and place-appropriate plant palettes, water conserving irrigation, restoration of living soil, rainwater and greywater harvesting, and elimination of dry and wet-weather runoff.
We work in close association with our Program Partners and the wider G3 Community to spark and sustain change in neighborhoods. G3 is an open-platform organization, willing and able to work with all variety of public, non-profit, professional, and lay constituents toward motivating people to protect and restore their urban watersheds and transform water and resource-guzzling gardens into climate and place-appropriate landscapes.
