Presented by Texas Garden Clubs, Inc. and Texas AgriLife Extension Service

Dr. Bill Welch and Ms. Suzanne Milstead wish to announce the latest in the Landscape Design Study Courses: Number IV, Series XXI - February 22-23, 2010.

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. They have been attended by many Master Gardeners in the past. It is an opportunity for more in-depth training in landscape design than we normally include 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 – Southern Garden - landscape design courses. Here you may also view a thumbnail description of each of the courses included in this session. It is also possible to view the tentative schedule of events and the registration form.

This is the last course in a four-part series, although participants can begin with any of the four. The program is nationally accredited by the National Council of State Garden Clubs 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 Dr. Alice Le Duc of Duke Gardens, Raleigh, N.C. for this presentation. She will speak on “ Pre-Columbian America: Architectural and Landscape Design.”

We are pleased to offer “scholarships” for Course IV 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.

Please fill out and return the registration form as soon as possible. Cost of the course will be $115; cost of the textbook (good for 4 sessions) $40.

Stewart Thompson of Martha’s Bloomers garden center in Navasota, TX has indicated that there will again be a wine-and-cheese reception for the participants in the course after the coursework on Monday. Reservations may be made the first morning of the course for a special dinner, beginning at 5:30 pm (cost: $16.95).
