Multiple Refreshers

Main Article Section


Continuing education for Flower Show Judges and Consultants.

The National Garden Clubs, Inc. offers four schools for the enrichment and educational growth of its members. Upon completion of a school, members must maintain their accreditation. In order to maintain accreditation, consultants are required to attend optional events that enhance knowledge acquired, explore current trends, and promote interest in the school subject.

Consultants of Environmental Studies, Gardening Study, and Landscape Design Schools are encouraged to refresh in optional events sponsored within the organization. A multiple refresher may be for two (Bi-Refresher) or three (Tri-Refresher) of these schools where subject matter usually overlaps to a large degree. Flower Show School symposia usually concentrate on flower shows, horticulture and design.

Although the courses are intended primarily for garden club members, they are open to the general public, requiring only the payment of a nominal fee.
