The interaction between people and plants is good for everyone.

Explore the relationship between people and place
Current Programs and Participants
In the Zone - programs in the Arrington Plant Adventure Zone. This new space is constructed according to the principles of universal design, encouraging participation by all. Its programs are grounded in those same principles, providing experiential opportunities with seasonal plants for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
Adventures in The Gardens – appropriately-adapted botanical education for groups in The Gardens. We also offer golf-cart tours of The Gardens for people with genuine mobility impairments.
Plant Adventures Student– hands-on opportunities to work and learn at The Gardens for youth and young adults in school-to-work transition programs
Outreach Adventures – botanical outreach and educational experiences for children and adults in the community.
Our programs are free to the public, but take funds to provide. We welcome contributions of any size.
