Certificate Classes
Certificate Program Registration
This is a one-time administrative fee. You may take any certificate class without pursuing the Ecological Gardening Certificate, however, those who are working toward the certificate must register. This registration also gives you early access to enroll in certificate classes before each Spring/Summer program guide is released to the general public. Program registration is limited to one student per transaction.

If you are registering someone other than yourself for the certificate program, please call 302.239.4244.
