2017 Earth-Kind® landscape design and management school


By Mark Arnold / County Extension Agent, Agriculture & Natural Resources Ellis County

During this unique educational experience, you will learn how to design, plant, and manage a landscape that is beautiful, low maintenance, tolerant to heat, drought, and torrential rains, and the ultimate in environmental responsibility. No previous design, plant, or management knowledge is needed.

This two-day course will take place at the beautiful Myers Park & Event Center near McKinney the weekend of Feb. 25 – 26, 2017, and consists of an in-depth classroom program, outdoor laboratory session, plus a personalized extended (1.5 hour) landscape design consultation to be conducted a few weeks later.

In early summer, you will also be able to join us on a special field trip to tour the highly regarded Texas A&M Earth-Kind Plant Trials.

Dr. Steve George, Professor and Extension Landscape Specialist with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and creator of the Earth-Kind® Environmental Landscape Management System, is the lead instructor and will personally conduct all of the design consultations. 

When the course is complete, you will have been given a wealth of landscape knowledge and will leave with a labeled working landscape plan for the major landscape area of your choice.

This school is an outstanding value at only $295 per household. Class size is very limited, so you will want to enroll as soon as possible. For more information and to enroll, please contact Kim Betancourt (972-952-9211, kim.betancourt@ag.tamu.edu).
