Certificate in Native Plant Studies
The South Carolina Native Plant Society (SCNPS) and the South Carolina Botanical Garden (SCBG) are excited to offer a Certificate in Native Plant Studies program. To read more, click here.

Join Rick Huffman, landscape architect, and founder and past president of the South Carolina Plant Society, to learn how native plants are the key to developing a sustainable landscape, and an important way to conserve nature resources. A sustainable landscape is in balance with the local climate, soil and plants and wildlife. Native plants enable you to potentially minimize the resource inputs into your garden, such as fertilizer, pesticides, gasoline, time and water. In this class, we put it all together: planning and design, site and plant selection, soil conditions, irrigation and water efficiency, and maintenance.

Principles of Sustainable Landscaping is a core course and is required for certification. Pre-requisite: Basic Botany.

Location: Hayden Conference Center at the South Carolina Botanical Garden.
