Registration is open for spring and summer classes and workshops at BBG!

Check out summer classes and programs for adults, community gardeners, composters, and children from April through August.

This year, we are happy to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Native Flora Garden with special classes and events for adults. Learn what natives make the best alternatives to common garden exotics or take a watercolor class inspired by plant life found within 100 miles of New york City.

And as Time Out New York Kids recently said, what better way to celebrate spring than to register your child for a gardening class at BBG? Two- and three-year-olds explore nature accompanied by their caregivers, while Seeds (pre-K and K students) work communally to plant seeds and maintain crops. City Farmers (1st through 8th graders, broken into three age groups) take things further, working in small groups on their own plots to nurture plants from seed to table. Structured play and storytime for the younger set and science and cooking classes for older kids add to the outdoorsy fun.

All classes and educational programs at BBG require preregistration (except for Discovery Workshops). Members receive a discount on class fees. Register today!
