Lifelong Learning Self-Paced Online CourseSticky Purple Geranium

Each year, over 121 million Americans visit public gardens. From public green spaces to community gardens to private yards, gardening is a critical part of our country’s culture. Gardening in America, the first of Lifelong Learning’s self-paced online courses, offers an introductory overview to the state of the country’s gardening culture, contexts that inform gardening, and ways to apply gardening approaches, styles, and practices for the greater good.  

This course is constructed in seven modules, each with lessons that include AHS-produced text, videos, articles, activities, and resource recommendations. You are welcome to explore the materials at your own pace throughout the semester and to connect with other learners in the forum to discuss the course topics.

Course access begins March 18 – August 16. Open to the public, this course is approachable for all experiences and learning levels. AHS members receive discounts on registration. Not a member and would like to join? You can sign-up here.
