Be forewarned! This class is full of activity. We will be doing quite a bit of walking outside so wear appropriate shoes and clothing! Also be prepared to interact with others in the landscape industry and exchange ideas with your peers. This is not the typical “sit down and listen to lecture type of workshop”.
