The Arboretum’s Blue Ridge Eco Gardener (BREG) Certificate of Merit program is designed to empower you with an understanding of the complex ecological principles underpinning healthy, self-sustaining landscapes and how to apply them in your garden. Participants complete core and elective courses in ecology, botany, permaculture, landscape design and more.
Our Spring 2024 Open Enrollment period runs December 15th through January 31st, 2024. Classes that are currently open for registration are listed on the Adult Education course page and updated monthly. Each class that counts toward certificate credit is priced separately. All learners are welcome to join our classes, regardless of whether they are enrolled in the BREG program!
