The International Japanese Garden Training Center is offering a new educational opportunity for professionals: Professional Intensive Courses. Aimed at meeting professional learning needs, these 2-3 day courses are taught by garden staff and focus on a single topic.
This three-day course provides 25 hours of theoretical and hands-on training in the Japanese approach to designing with nature and its modern use and application. Traditional techniques of arranging stone, plants, and water according to nature’s design principles are placed in historical perspective and given contemporary ecological and social context as tools for creating meaningful spaces that connect people to their environment. On-site thematic garden tours and lectures offer theoretical instruction in observing and analyzing composition and representations of nature in the garden.
Applications are due September 12.
