Florida Landscaping Expert Certification Program
October 24, 2016
The Florida Landscaping Expert Certification Program was developed to meet the need for a standard curriculum of information about the issues of landscaping in the subtropics. The program is for those who serve on a landscaping committee or are participating in a Garden Club of members who are responsible for the common areas of their Homeowners’ Associations.
The Florida Landscaping Expert Program is a modular curriculum that is delivered over 12 hours. After attending the four 3–hour sessions, participants will receive an Everglades Wonder Garden Certificate of Achievement and certification as a Florida Landscaping Expert. If you are unable to attend all four sessions (barring unforeseen circumstances) please postpone taking this course until the next time it is offered. Space is limited.
Session I – Monday, December 12, 2016
Session II – Monday, January 9, 2017
Session III – Monday, January 23, 2017
Session IV – Monday, February 6, 2017
Doors open at 8:30 a.m. when a light breakfast will be served. The program begins at 9 a.m. and ends at noon. Bring comfortable clothing because a portion of the program will be held outside.
The sessions will be held at the Everglades Wonder Gardens, Environmental Learning Center, 27180 Old 41 Road, Bonita Springs. There is ample parking on the north side of the Wonder Gardens’ property, directly behind the Twisted Tangle Café.
