    Course 2 of the Envoronmental Studies School is being run in Jan 2014 by the National
    Council at Deerwood , Maryland. The four courses can be taken in any order so you could take course 2 at Deerwood and then n April you could take course 1 in Depp Creek.

        Hi Denise,
        ESS is one of the various school options offered by National Garden Clubs. You can go to learn (see some of the course listings on the course schedule showcased above in the posting for an idea of what is covered) and there are levels of certification as well if you to do it for that reason. As Marjorie notes, you can take the courses in any order and Course 2 will be coming up at Derwood, MD in January. Please check out the main menu “CGC Affiliates” and look under National Garden Club for information about all the schools and courses that you may be interested in.
