GoNativeU: Informal Classes at UT

Want to learn more about a gardening topic?

The University of Texas at Austin and Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center have just announced their new classes at Go Native U!

Go Native U is an informal education program designed to teach adults about the sustainable use and conservation of native wildflowers, plants and landscapes. In our spring and fall series of native plant gardening classes, students learn about the benefits of native plants in a fun and interactive environment. Classes with NPG prefix are part of the Native Plant Gardening Certificate Program. Classes with EL prefix are Electives. All classes are held at the Wildflower Center’s beautiful campus in south Austin.

Classes start as early as March 26th and may last through early June. They cost at least $45. There are lots of good topics, such as landscape design, plants, pests, gardening for wildlife etc.

They have some nice classes pre-packaged as a Native Plant Gardening Certificate. There is a certificate 1 and certificate 2. Each set of classes cost $243.

Let us know if you plan to take any of these – perhaps there will be a big Zilker contingent.
