This certificate is becoming increasing more important for gardeners, given client demands for sustainable, easily maintained landscapes with a focus on native plant selections and garden designs that create “a sense of place”.  The course of study will focus specifically on the landscape, plants and designs especially suited to the Berkshire region and the adjacent tri-state area. This certificate requires Level I and Level II Certificates and 72 classroom hours of electives with the NP designation.
