The Florida Landscaping Expert Certification Program was developed to meet the need for a standard curriculum of information about the issues of landscaping in the subtropics. The program is designed for those who serve on a landscaping committee or are participating in a Garden Club of members who are responsible for the common areas of their Homeowners/Condominium Associations.
The Florida Landscaping Expert Program is a modular curriculum that is delivered over 12 hours. After attending all four 3–hour sessions, participants will receive a Wonder Gardens Certificate of Achievement and certification as a Florida Landscaping Expert!
If you are unable to attend all four sessions (barring unforeseen circumstances) please postpone taking this course until the next time it is offered. Space is limited.
