Gardening and Horticulture Classes at UCLA Ext.
I'm a college graduate who works full time, and am interested in making a career change into Horticulture.
I'd love to work in a nursery or botanical garden, propagating and caring for plants. I'm not a people person, so the retail aspect of working at a nursery doesn't appeal to me, but the opportunity to work with the plants does.
I'm thinking of taking classes in Gardening and Horticulture at UCLA Extension, but it's quite expensive, so before I make a decision to take any classes there, I'd like to know if anyone here has taken these classes at UCLA, and if you feel that it was worth the money and time you put into it. Also, does anyone in the LA area know of another path to take, or maybe another institution to go to, that can help me achieve my goals, and in a more cost-efficient way?
I'd appreciate any feedback and advice.
