Grow your life story at the School.
Engage your senses, body, and mind with 1,500 classes, workshops, programs, and events on everything from the life cycle of plants to painting and photography, butterflies to bonsai, and wilderness survival to yoga workouts, in one of the largest blended indoor/outdoor learning environments in the area.
For adults, an extensive schedule provides a wealth of choices, both for enjoyment and for professional development through certificate programs. Teacher workshops increase understanding of plants and nature, build teaching techniques, and enliven classrooms.
Young visitors and families find activities and programs that inspire curiosity about the natural world. The Regenstein School offers a lifetime pathway to learning by incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education through plant-based teaching and practices.
Instruction by Garden staff and experts in their fields ensures every class, workshop, or symposium at the Regenstein School is an exceptional experience.
