Enroll now for Earth-Kind Landscape Design School
It’s back-to-school time!
The Earth-Kind initiative is, indeed, about making smart plant selections. And it’s much, much more. The program is summed up nicely on its website:
The objective of Earth-Kind Landscaping is to combine the best of organic and traditional gardening and landscaping principles to create a horticultural system based on real world effectiveness and environmental responsibility.
Does this sound like your kind of gardening? If so, you’re going to love this: The folks behind the Earth-Kind program will be hosting a landscape design school Oct. 5-7 in Dallas.
During this unique educational experience you’ll learn how to design, plant and manage a landscape that is beautiful, low maintenance, drought tolerant, and the ultimate in environmental responsibility. No previous plant or design knowledge is needed.
As we mentioned earlier, this 2.5 day course will take place in Dallas the weekend of October 5-7. It consists of an in-depth classroom program, outdoor laboratory session, field trip to tour Earth-Kind research trials, plus a personalized extended (1.5 hour) landscape design consultation.
Dr. Steve George, Professor and Extension Landscape Specialist with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and creator of the Earth-Kind® Environmental Landscape Management System, is the lead instructor and will personally conduct all of the design consultations.
Our very own Sam Weger, Vice-President of Recruiting and Training at Calloway’s Nursery (and Chairman of the Board of the Texas Nursery and Landscape Association) will also speak at this cutting-edge environmental event.
When the course is complete, you’ll have a wealth of landscape knowledge and you’ll leave with a labeled landscape plan for the area of your choice.
This course is an outstanding value at only $295 per household. Class size is very limited, so you will want to enroll as soon as possible. For more information and to enroll, contact Faye Hill (972-952-9241, email@example.com).
