Urban Transformation Network’s (UTN) urban course is designed to prepare participants for a career in the landscape industry. Participants receive hands-on instruction in topics such as soil and botany, raised beds, and plant pathology and more from instructors who have years of experience working in those fields. Instruction is conducted at our urban garden locations where participants have the opportunity to apply their classroom instruction on real landscape projects.
