Join us on Zoom for an entertaining garden education with David Clark, Horticulturist & Certified Nursery and Landscape Professional (CNLP), through the New York State Landscaping Association, and PLANT Western New York. David is fast becoming one of the country’s noted garden speakers!

If you are just starting out, have been gardening for a while or consider yourself somewhat of an expert... open yourself to the idea of being a lifelong learner and sign up.  David will make you laugh and teach you all kinds of new skills and ideas you can use to create or enhance an amazing garden of your own.  

An optional supply list will be posted online for those who wish to supplement their instruction with hands-on materials. In order to maintain the safest environment possible, classes will be offered via Zoom Meeting, a free online audio-visual platform. Please review the supply list to purchase before the start of class.

All adult classes and workshops are recorded and are available for one week after the class. Therefore, if you miss a class, you will have one week to catch up on the class at your convenience. Review our class information and procedures for more information.
