NGC Garden Schools
The NGC Gardening Study Courses are designed to provide educational information to those especially interested in gardening, horticulture and related subjects. The School consists of a series of four courses, scheduled usually for two days of instruction, followed by a general examination. Courses cover all aspects of growing, from understanding soil structure to pruning techniques, plant identification, etc. Topics include basic botany, soils, growing annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs, fruits and vegetables, lawns, pests and diseases of plants, plant classification, and selected subjects of local interest. Additional topics and areas of interest may be covered.
The courses are intended primarily for garden club members, but they are also open to the general public, requiring only the payment of a nominal fee.
If you and your club members love gardening and wish to improve your garden practices, please contact Jo Jean ( firstname.lastname@example.org or 270-781-2089 ) for more information and a brochure regarding Gardening Schools Course 2.
The cost for the two-day Course is $65.00 and includes 2 box lunches.
