David Clark, horticulturist and CNLP, will return to teach another series of Horticulture Certificate Programs at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens.
A dynamic instructor with a wealth of knowledge, he is fast becoming one of the country’s noted garden speakers. His classes are very popular because he conveys subject matter with infectious enthusiasm.
These classes are great for beginners who would like to learn more about gardening as well as for experts looking to refine their skills. Clark creates a very lively and energetic atmosphere for both novice and advanced gardeners.
You can enroll in a full series for a certificate or take individual classes. You can enroll online now for any class or any of the four series being offered.
The first Horticulture Certificate Series will be Horticulture I. Classes will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays from Sept. 8 to Oct. 20 in the Administration Building at the Botanical Gardens, 2655 South Park Ave., Buffalo.
