What's in November's Greenkeeper International?
It’s meant a return to uncertain times for the nation’s greenkeepers, but Greenkeeper International is here to provide some clarity on how to keep your team safe, while providing the usual help and advice and interesting features to keep you progressing professional despite the recent restrictions.
Greenkeeper International is posted to every member of BIGGA and is read by an estimated 14,000 turf professionals every month. If you’re a member of the association you can also view it on our website.
For those who are CPD active, BIGGA members can receive a CPD credit just for reading Greenkeeping International, while there are more credits up for grabs for contributing to the magazine by submitting articles and other content.
Any BIGGA member who contributes a feature for the magazine is automatically entered into a competition to win £750 cash and a trip to Florida. You can also join the debate by writing in to our Postage Stamp letters page, where BIGGA members can discuss whatever is on their mind. Emails can be sent to email@example.com
