Garden Design Program

Certificate of Completion

Our Garden Design Program takes a practical approach to gardens and landscapes by looking at the process involved in layouts and planting as well as the art of garden design. The required courses have been designed to be relevant for both beginners and avid gardeners. They give you the opportunity to work with current horticulture professionals as you build the knowledge and skills you need to design, install and maintain gardens in Ontario. Some courses offer field trips for enriched learning experiences.

This program is offered by George Brown College Continuing Education in partnership with the Toronto Botanical Garden.
