Adult Programs at Powell Gardens
At Powell Gardens, we believe developing an appreciation for plants is a lifelong process. We invite you to attend one of our adult programs to deepen your affection for the natural world, learn a new skill, or enjoy a unique activity with a friend. Weekend, evening, and weekday classes and programs are offered year-round. Check our calendar for the latest listings.

Gardening 101 classes are great for all gardeners interested in establishing new or improving existing gardens. Powell Gardens’ staff will share their expertise, take questions, and give a tour.
Lunchtime Lectures provide deep-dives into plant and horticulture topics, presented by industry experts.
Work & Learn
These programs allow participants to roll up their sleeves for a hands-on lesson in the Gardens with horticulture staff. Participants will go home with a new skill and occasionally a cutting or treat.
