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 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 Associations.
The Florida Landscaping Expert Program is a modular curriculum that is delivered over 12-hours. After attending the four 3-hour sessions, participants will receive an Everglades Wonder Garden 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.
