Take a personal tour with Jeff McManus, whose expertise in landscaping has gained The University of Mississippi accolades of being named “The Most Beautiful Campus” by a number of national publications as well in Newsweek 2011 and just recently in USA Today’s Readers Choice competition.

During this 2 day camp each participant will receive a book written by Jeff McManus at the Opening Dinner and Book Signing.

To top it off tours will also take place on route the famous Double Decker Bus to the beautifully landscaped home of Dickie & Diane Scruggs which is maintained by McManus, as well as a tour of the City Oxford.
