Please note: Circumstances through the year may result in minor modifications.
Our class schedule is prepared each year the summer before our class starts. It represents our best plan for the class. However, sometimes things change. Speakers can’t make it or need a different day; a topic may change; or a planned field trip gets rained out. No plan is perfect. But one thing we are sure of—our class program presents excellent speakers offering exceptional horticultural education.
