Dr. Bill Welch and Mrs. Nell Zeigler, Chairpersons, wish to announce the latest in the Landscape Design Study Courses: Number II, Series XXII - February 21-22, 2011.
The courses are held in College Station, TX., and are co-sponsored by Texas Garden Clubs, Inc. and Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M University. Participants may take the four courses in any sequence.
These lectures will be of interest to Garden Club members, Master Gardeners, nurserymen and others who are interested in furthering their knowledge of landscape design. They have been attended by many Master Gardeners in the past. It is an opportunity for more in-depth training in landscape design than is normally included in the Master Gardener curriculum. Each course is typically approved by local Master Gardener chapters to qualify for 12 hours of continuing education toward maintaining certification for Master Gardeners.
Further information may be found at The Southern Garden. Here you may also view a thumbnail description of each of the courses included in this session. The tentative schedule of events and the registration form are provided below. A list of the topics includes:
- Landscape Design Process
- Site Design and Landform
- Plants in the Landscape
- Plant Selection
- Structures in the Landscape
- Landscapes as a Learning Experience
- Development of Landscape Design in Early America
- Heirloom Gardening
This is the second course in a four-part series, although participants can begin with any of the four. The program is nationally accredited by the National Garden Clubs, Inc. and offered at approximately six month intervals here in the Bryan-College Station area. Each of the courses offers an "outside" lecture. This time, we are pleased to have horticulturist Greg Grant of Stephen F. Austin University, Nacogdoches, TX for this presentation. He will speak on Heirloom Gardening. There will be ten lectures in all.
We are pleased to offer "scholarships" for Course II to County Extension Agents with horticulture and/or Master Gardener responsibilities. This amounts to the course paying the registration fee for qualified individuals. We hope that this will be useful as professional improvement for these agents, as we all strive to improve our educational programs.
