A PLACE TO LEARN AND GROW

Adult Programs

Join us at the Columbus Botanical Garden where you can discover knowledge of the natural world, cultivate your gardening & horticulture skills, kindle your creativity or just have fun! The Garden offers year round programs and hands-on workshops in gardening, botanical arts, wellness, garden-to-table cooking and much more.

Lunch and Learn
 
Every 3rd Wednesday of the month, we have a speaker come to the garden. Our monthly Lunch and Learn series is a chance to participate in an informal learning session.  The monthly topics range from gardening basics, growing tips and history on specific flora and fauna varieties, environmental conservation, pollinators and birds, community programs, flower arranging, self-improvement through nature, and more. The class lesson goes for approximately 45 minutes, with a 15-minute Q&A session at the end. An experienced instructor with the knowledge and skills to give trusted and accurate information on the class subject leads each class.
