Adult Programs

Our educational programs for adults cover a variety of gardening topics—formal landscape design, vegetable gardening, backyard birding, etc.—as well as art, photography and tai chi. Our programs may be intimate hands-on workshops or large lectures, depending on the topic. And our gardens are ever-present examples of attainable environmental stewardship, conservation and preservation.
