The Council of Albuquerque Garden Clubs is pleased to announce a new series of educational classes, workshops, and guided nature walks. All classes are open to the public and may be purchased individually or in multiples, which can then qualify the student for a discount.
Classes will be taught by well qualified instructors who are recognized as experts in the community on a specific topic. Most classes will include Visual Demonstrations, PowerPoint Presentations, Handouts, Book Lists, and a Question and Answer Period.
“Gardening ‘U’ for You” classes will be held at the Albuquerque Garden Center which is located at 10120 Lomas Boulevard NE in Albuquerque, NM. Enrolling in a class may be accomplished in person at the AGC, by mail, or by calling the AGC at 505-296-6020.
Classes generally will be held on the third Monday evening of each month with some exceptions. Additional workshops/events may be offered some months and will usually be related to that month’s class subject. Please check the class date carefully when registering for classes. Classes will meet from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
Individuals may switch classes in advance of a class that they have enrolled in, but once the original class has taken place, the class may not be switched or rescheduled. Class/Workshop/Nature Walk fees are non-refundable – they may only be switched prior to the class.
Gift Certificates are available for classes. The recipient, upon receiving the gift certificate, should call the AGC to enroll for the class/classes of their choice. Gift Certificates may not be redeemed for cash.
Check the 2015 schedule in a separate post. Additional opportunities may be offered during the year, but are not guaranteed. Visit our website for any additional class offerings.
Hands-on workshop material fees are payable to the instructor in cash only at the time of the workshop. Please make note of any tools needed for workshops when enrolling and have those on hand for the workshop.
Each Class/Workshop/Nature Walk costs $10 each, plus any materials fees that are listed. (All materials fees must be paid in cash to the instructor on the day of the class/workshop)
