30 August 2022 update: This field trip is SOLD OUT. To be put on the waitlist, email email@example.com
Join Jennifer de Graaf, landscape architect (Lic. #5461), 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 is located in San Ramon (that is not open to the general public) and 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. Instructor 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.
Requirements to participate:
- Register and watch the “(Webinar) Choose Plants like a Pro” lecture.
- Must be a 2022 Dry Garden Design Certificate Program student.
- Provide own transportation for this offsite, San Ramon location.
