Flower Show School Courses


National Garden Club School courses are open to everyone. Garden Club members may take courses for credit to become an Environmental, Gardening or Landscape Design Consultant or a Flower Show Judge. Consultants and Judges may also refresh their accreditation with course attendance. Master Gardener Volunteers often take courses to gain needed continuing education credits. All are welcome to attend for the joy of learning.

Flower Show School

Flower Show School is a comprehensive program that teaches all you need to know about judging, entering, competing and chairing a NGC flower show. Please see the Flower Show School page for more information.
