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.
Adult students benefit from the more than 500 courses and lectures offered each year through the Garden’s Continuing Education program. Certificate programs are offered in seven plant—related disciplines. Class offerings range from one-hour lectures to five-week intensive programs.
Certificate Programs are a carefully selected series of courses focused on particular disciplines, preparing students for careers as well as personal enrichment in their chosen field of study.

The teacher was lovely. The course got started 20 mins late and most of the attendees were part of a day long group. Within the day long class they broke it up into three other smaller classes. It was a weird experience.
I learned a lot. Looking forward to many more courses at NY Botanical Garden.
Amazing instructor and truly a fun loose casual conversational style of learning. I really learned a lot and got to improvise and be creative as well. I would definitely recommend and I'd take it again if I could !
I learned a lot about different veggies and herbs I can grow right at home.
Wonderful class. Learned so much!! Excellent, friendly teacher!
The picture that was on the course description didn't represent the project. It was disappointing and expensive for what it was. The instructor was nice and very knowledgeable but I had in mine we were going to make something like the picture.
This course was excellent. Very professional. The instructor was great.
Teacher just gave us a bunch of flowers and told us to arrange them. No direction.
