Landscape Design Consultants Council

Landscape Design School I, 2017

FROM: Landscape Design Consultants Council – Ann Houston, President

This is the first course in a series of Landscape Design Study Courses sponsored by the The Garden Club of Alabama, Inc.’s Landscape Design Consultants Council (LDCC). Instructors are Auburn professors and answer all kinds of sensible and crazy questions.

Classes are held on Auburn University campus at Ham Wilson Arena Classroom. Dates are Monday & Tuesday, October 2 & 3, 2017. Check-in starts at 8:30am and we try to leave campus by 4:30pm.

Cost is $50 for both days, $30 for one day or for LDCC Refresher, and $5 extra for those seeking credit. Box lunches are available for $10 per day.

This popular series of landscape design studies is educational, informative and fun! These classes are part of National Garden Clubs and accreditation transfers across state lines. Master Gardeners can receive continuing education units (CUs). Local gardening volunteers are encouraged to join us. You do not have to be a garden club member, all those interested in God’s green earth are welcomed to join us as we work to “Create Heaven on Earth”!
