The Gardening Study School is held annually and consists of 4 courses, each containing 10 hours of instruction on an extensive array of gardening topics. Completing the curriculum and passing exams based on each of the four courses can lead to becoming certified as a Gardening Consultant. The exams are given a couple of days after each course and are not mandatory unless you want to pursue certification.

Gardening Study School is a great way to learn new techniques or brush up on old methods; you’ll meet fellow gardeners from all over the state and share new ideas and proven timesavers. We’ll also have demonstrations, time to tour the gardens, and plant sales during the course of our two days. And let’s not forget the delicious catered lunches (extra fee).
