We provide a wide array of educational programs for adults and children. Education in ornamental horticulture, botanical sciences, and history is provided through lectures, workshops, garden walks, and hands-on classes given by Blithewold staff and leading regional professionals. Please take a look at our current education offerings.

Blithewold also sponsors popular children's camps during the summer and spring vacation weeks, giving children the opportunity to learn about the interaction of plants, and animals, with humans and the environment.

When you sign up for a class, you have access to the gardens for that day. Please be sure to sign up early!
