Adult Education Classes

Take a yoga class surrounded by nature, boost your photography skills in the Japanese Garden, start your vegetable garden, and more! We help lifelong learners grow through a variety of learning experiences, bringing people closer to nature, creativity, and wellness. By registering for a class, you are supporting both the Garden and local instructors. Thank you!

Our adult education program is supported by our partners at the Tarrant County Master Gardeners Association, Fort Worth Audubon Society, Fort Worth Garden Club, and Fort Worth Bonsai Society. 

Registration for adult education classes closes 2 business days prior to the event. This allows time to determine if we have met the minimum registrations required and then contact guests with either class details or cancellation notices. Individual registration deadlines are listed in class descriptions. To be sure our emails always make it to your inbox, please add the domain to your email whitelist. (Click here for a quick how-to)


  • Adult classes are for participants 18 and older.
  • Discounted classes are a perk of Family level memberships and above. 
  • Class registration fees include complimentary entry into the Garden on the day of the class. Entry to the BRIT building is always free (M – F, 10 am – 4 pm).
  • To cancel your registration for a class, please email at least ten calendar days prior to the start of that class. You will receive an 85% refund. No refunds are granted less than ten calendar days before the class starts. If you choose, you may gift your seat in the class to a friend or family member; we will need the new participant’s name and email address at least two days prior to the class.
  • Payment for your class reserves your seat and allows us to secure the instructor. If you are late for class, your seat will be reserved; we do not transfer your seat to walk-in participants. Partial refunds or transfers are not available for unattended classes.
  • A class is canceled if it does not meet the minimum registration requirement two business days prior to the class. Register early to help ensure that the class you want is not canceled due to low enrollment and encourage your friends to do the same!
  • In the event that Adult Education must cancel a class, you will be notified by email two business days prior to the class and offered the following options. We can transfer your ticket to another class (or classes, so long as the new value does not exceed the original value) or provide a refund to the original payment method.
