Doubly fortunate are we! These sisters were inspired by their late mother, Leona Venettozzi, to become the exemplary garden club members and leaders they are. Leona was a true gardener, and that love led her to design. A long-time NGC Design Instructor, Leona taught so many—sowell!

Gina and Tina were with us as Instructors for Course I, and we are so happy to welcome them back.

Horticulture – TinaTuttle

We are fortunate to have Bettina Venettozzi Tuttle and her professional approach to the study of plants. Tina’s background and qualifications are known to many, and will be shared more completely when we introduce her officially atSchool.

Design – GinaJogan

Gina Venettozzi Jogan will be demonstrating her expertise, and you may expect delightful designs with a bit of dry humor to lighten the mood. Too numerous to even begin to tell here, Gina’s story will also be shared atSchool.
