The school courses will be held at the Dryer Masonic Temple in Tacoma, Washington, which is great for the "local" garden club members because if you sign up for the school you can drive home every day instead of spending a night someplace.

Gardening School consists of a series of four courses, each scheduled over two days of instruction, followed by an exam for those interested in becoming a NGC accredited Gardening Consultant.  Courses cover all aspects of horticulture: gardening, understanding soil structure, pruning techniques, identifying plants, etc. Topics include basic botany, soils, annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, fruits, vegetables, lawns, pests, plant diseases, plant classification and selected subjects of local interest. Additional topics may include reconciliation ecology and creating backyard habitats to help endangered species such as pollinators and amphibians as well as working with youth.
