The Short Course is Coming Back to Virginia Beach!

MAHSC is a nationally-recognized annual training for professionals in the Green Industries, sponsored by the Virginia Horticultural Foundation.

This January 19 - 22, 2016 MAHSC will be hosting the short course at the Founder's Inn in Virginia Beach!
