Flower Show School Courses


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