Adult Education

Classes & Workshops

Our adult education programs take place either onsite (outdoors or indoors) or online. BE SURE TO CHECK WHETHER YOUR CLASS IS VIRTUAL OR ONSITE. For outdoor classes, we will:

  • offer advanced registration only.
  • cap registration at  15 participants.
  • offer hand sanitizer and masks.

Which native plants are best for your garden? Is it possible to paint a plant portrait? How can fermented plants support health? And what is permaculture? We’re passionate about plants, and equally passionate about helping you satisfy your curiosity about the natural world. It is our privilege to help adults discover the wonders of nature through a variety of classes, workshops, and programs, both in-person and virtual. We aim to build an inclusive community by bringing people closer to nature, science, creativity, and wellness. Come join a thriving community who loves to learn in, and about, nature!

Our adult education program is supported by our partners at the Tarrant County Master Gardeners Association.

GROW Adult Education programs are for adults 18 and older. BRIT and the Fort Worth Botanic Garden endeavor to offer a quality educational experience to each program participant, with class sizes supporting this policy. Registered participants may not bring an unregistered participant of any age to class. Onsite registrations, when a class is not sold out, are encouraged.

GROW members may register for courses at the discounted member rate; guests of members do not qualify for the member rate. Program registration fees include complimentary entry into the Botanic Garden the day of the program. Entry to BRIT is always free. 

Many courses are held outdoors and may require moderate walking to and from one or more locations. As such we recommend that participants dress comfortably in clothes that are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor adventures. If you have questions about physical requirements, please call 817-546-1844. Most classes are held rain or shine. If we are unable to hold a class due to inclement weather, you will be notified and we will transfer you will receive a full refund.

Participants are encouraged to register early, as programs with insufficient registration (depending on type of class) will be canceled approximately 3 days before the scheduled start date.  


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; just send us the name and email address of the person who is taking your spot so we can add them to the roster and send them the appropriate information.

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.

In the event that we must cancel a class, you will be notified email and will have several options: we can transfer your ticket to another class right away (or classes, so long as the new value does not exceed the original value), issue a credit to be applied to another class or classes in the same calendar year, or provide a refund. This applies to classes that do not meet the minimum registrant requirement, which sometimes occurs.

By registering online, over the phone, or in person, you are agreeing to GROW’s ten-day cancellation policy outlined above.
