  • Become better educated to make changes in our surroundings so that they will be more beautiful, useful, convenient, ecologically sound and easily maintained.
  • Stimulate interest in all phases of landscape design, including community planning that will affect all of our lives.
  • Develop a contingent of qualified Landscape Design Consultants to serve in such decision- making areas of public life as providing leadership, educational programs, scholarships, awards and promoting better landscape design.

There will be an NGC online Gardening School, Course 3, scheduled for November 15-16, 2022 via Zoom.  This is a wonderful time to learn about gardening with paying only the registration cost versus paying registration, hotel, gas and meal costs. If you want to learn more about gardening, and who doesn’t, I enourage you and your members to sign up for this course. Courses do not have to be taken in order. Please pass this e-mail onto your club presidents and encourage them to attend.  I’m a four star member working on my five star membership and I think our schools are great!
