GCNJ held its first ZOOM class – Landscape Design School on June 15-16, 2021. A successful and well-received LDS Course 3 began with an introduction by our President – Cecelia Millea. We were fortunate to have the following instructors: Bruce Crawford, Dr. Randi Eckel, Steve Kristoph, Denise Mattes and Tom Breiten.
The 19 students came from various states including: Florida, Maryland, New York, Virginia, California, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Massachusetts. The benefits of holding a Zoom program! Several of the students were achieving the high accreditation for Master Consultants in Landscape Design and a few finishing up their requirements for becoming a Consultant. Please visit the National Website for all the updates for further courses and information for all the schools. It is a great program that the Garden Clubs offer to all of us.
Thank you to Sue Berdahl as Register and Ellen Preissler as Technical Administrator. Please visit our website for the dates “to be determined” for Course 4.
