Landscape Design Schools
The NGC welcomes all interested gardeners to landscape design
school whose purpose is to develop an appreciation of the
environment, both natural and built.
The curriculum, in a series of four courses, covers a wide range
of subjects: from landscape design history to landscape
architecture in the year 2000 and beyond. Since its founding in
1958, professional instructors have maintained the high standards
originally incorporated in the study program. Also offered are many
optional programs, such as conferences, symposia and tours.
Students acquire the tools for making their own gardens more
beautiful and easier to maintain. Many students have been motivated
to serve in political decision-making areas where awareness of the
impact of a well-designed landscape can enhance the beauty and
enjoyment of life in the public arena.
