Business owners in the Landscape Ontario community have exclusive access to a great peer mentorship and learning program

Business owners and upper management are faced with hundreds of problems, decisions and issues every single day. Running a business is tough work and you don't have to always try and figure things out on your own.

Your peers in the landscape and horticulture profession can help! Attend one of our events or post a question online via our invitation-only private Facebook group and your peers will confidentially and professionally help you to achieve your true potential.

Be the leader you aspire to become. Join LO's Peer to Peer Network today!

Simply email signup.peer2peer@landscapeontario.com and ask to be added to the online group.
Remember, the program is an LO member-exclusive benefit, open to business owners and upper-level managers.
