Flower Show School Courses

Overview

National Garden Clubs' School courses are open to everyone. Garden Club members may take courses for credit to become an Environmental, Gardening or Landscape Design Consultant or a Flower Show Judge. Consultants and Judges may also refresh their accreditation with course attendance. Master Gardener Volunteers often take courses to gain needed continuing education credits. All are welcome to attend for the joy of learning.
