Join us for ONLINE Horticulture Classes!

Students have been asking us for years when we were planning on adding another series to our popular Horticulture Classes and here it is! Join us on Tuesday evenings this July as David Clark dives deeper into exciting horticultural topics with his signature verve. David Clark, Horticulturist & CNLP is fast becoming one of the country’s noted garden speakers! These classes are great for beginners or gardeners and landscapers wishing to brush up on their skills. Those who complete each series will be presented with a certificate upon completion. Horticulture I and II are not a prerequisite. Pre-registration is required.

Horticulture Series VII will be offered via Zoom, a free online audio-visual platform. David Clark will be teaching these classes from his home in order to maintain physical distancing practices. Handouts will be available for you to download. You will need internet access and a device (computer, smart phone, tablet, etc.) with speakers and that can connect to the internet. The link will be sent to registered participants a few days prior to each class.
