Neumann is offering horticulture classes that can lead to a certificate in the field. Completion of five classes (80 CEU hours) is required to obtain a certificate in the horticulture program. Three of these courses are available this spring, all offered on Saturdays between February 13 and March 20.
The classes are also available individually to anyone interested in a specific topic. There is no obligation to seek a certificate in order to enroll in any course.
“Landscape Design for Your Home” (9-11 a.m.) teaches students how to measure an area, examine landscape designs and install plants. Participants will learn how to design an area using trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants native to Pennsylvania.
Courses on “Herbaceous Perennials” (11:05 a.m. – 1:05 p.m.) and “Evergreen Trees and Shrubs” (1:15 – 3:15 p.m.) follow the landscaping class. Participants will learn Latin and common names, plant descriptions, care, and planting requirements.
All classes are offered by the Division of Continuing Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS). They take place in the Rocco Abessinio Building on the Neumann University campus and are presented by Robert E. Seeley, M.S.
Additional courses needed to complete the certificate will be offered during the summer and fall semesters.
