Continuing Education

Dates & Price

As we all continue to work together to limit the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining spring classes and upcoming fall semester of Continuing Education classes slated to go on sale June 10.

Classes will resume in winter 2021.

Wednesday, June 10, 2020
8:30 am—12:00 pm

Fee: $69

The first bite into a ripe peach or the sweet taste of the perfect blackberry reminds us of the joys of the summer harvest. Learn about the culture and care of summer fruits as we explore the Idea Garden’s vegetable and fruit collection. Learn when and how to harvest, how to prune for maximum yield, and the science of thinning. Then enjoy the fragrance and flavors of summer with a tasting from Longwood’s pastry chef as she prepares small bites of seasonal cuisine.
