Since its founding in 1891 The New York Botanical Garden has been a museum of plants, a preeminent center for botanical research, a global leader in plant-based education, and one of the great cultural institutions in the world.
The New York Botanical Garden educates people of all ages about the science, function, and beauty of plants to generate awareness, inspire appreciation, and provide an understanding of the importance of plants to all life on Earth.
The Garden’s Education Division offers a wide range of structured, programmatic experiences at all levels of learning that is unrivaled at any botanical garden in the world.

It was my first course and it was excellent! The instructor was friendly and knowledgeable. She was able to answer all questions asked. I loved it! Can’t wait to take another course.
Super fun and informative
Great and knowledgeable instructor who was thorough with answering any and all questions. There was a lot of pertinent information pertaining to the course subject that will be very useful. There was so much information on the slides it would have been nice for him to offer emailing it to the students too. The building was under construction and was apparently not properly ventilated because about halfway through the course choking paint and chemical fumes filled the floor and room we were on. We tried opening windows and shutting doors to prevent the odors from filling the air, but then the sounds from the traffic and street below were loud and distracting. Certainly not the instructors fault, but NYBG could have been more conscious about how their construction was affecting their courses.
It was a beautiful day at the garden and the class was informational and fun!
Lots of great information. I think the class would have been even better if it was just a little bit longer. Would have liked to ask more questions, and would have liked some hands-on something.
Super interesting and helpful class!
I enjoyed this course
I wish there was more content. It was one arrangement. It would have been better if the demonstration was multiple and the hands on was one.
Great teacher! Beautiful flowers! Left with an incredible arrangement and good information.
Interesting and fun class where we learned how to rearrange a store bought bouquet in a vase so it looks better. We learned about common flowers in spring bouquets and where to start in arranging them. The instructor came around and gave everyone individualized attention and patiently answered questions. I appreciated that she took the time to look at each arrangement.
