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.
