Vitality University’s Natural-Organic Certification Course is brought to you by the Texas Organic Research Center (TORC)

Until now no university or school of any kind has offered a degree program or certification in the world of organic gardening, farming, horticulture or agriculture. That has now changed with the introduction of TORC’s Natural-Organic Certification Course. Howard Garrett teaches the course for the non profit organization in 15 chapters covered by video and a 25 page study booklet. The cost is reasonable and the details are explained using photography that Howard has been amassing for the past 45 years.



This course will explain the natural-organic program in clear, simple terms, and why it works better in every way. You will be given detailed, proven instructions for biological soil building, correct planting techniques, tree management, organic fertilizing, natural non-toxic and biological pest control, compost making and management, mulching pros and cons, landscaping tips, food crop production, irrigation, and more.


During this course, you will learn to:

  • Stop using destructive synthetic fertilizers and toxic pesticides.
  • Use natural-organic techniques and products effectively.
  • Save water and money with a more enjoyable approach to gardening and landscaping.
