(Offsite class) Field Trip: Wholesale Nursery
Friday, October 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$15.00 – $30.00
Join us for a field trip to a wholesale nursery and learn about the ins and outs of plant selection, ordering and setting up deliveries. This well-organized nursery serves landscape professionals who hold accounts with the business. There will be a brief orientation covering the layout of the grounds, how to apply for an account, how to work with this nursery, and Q&A. Participants will then be given a map and suggested things to think about while there. After this, you’ll be free to wander around and check things out. Jennifer De Graaf, landscape architect (Lic. #5461), will be available to answer questions for the whole class time. Whatever path you are considering in the landscape industry, seeing how the wholesale plant sourcing side works can be very helpful.
