TODAY’S HOURS: 8 am – 6 pm 

Walking Class: Tinsley Garden

Join Head Gardener Zach Gomez for our inaugural Walking Class, a special experience of a specific garden with a Garden expert. You’ll learn about the long history of the Tinsley/Rock Springs Garden and its beautiful and water-wise native Texas plants.

Instructor: Zach Gomez is the gardener of the Tinsley/Rock Springs Garden at FWBG. Rock Springs is designed as a North Central Texas Native Plant Garden using primarily plants native to the Western Cross Timbers. Zach has 20 years of experience working in virtually all aspects of landscape horticulture, from retail nursery, golf operations, organic vegetable production, and landscape design and installation. He was instrumental in the final design, installation, and maintenance of Rock Springs. His favorite hobby is to spend time with his two daughters hiking and hunting for plants around the area to propagate and introduce the Garden.

Program Information


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 send an email to


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.
