Waterfront Botanical Gardens’ team strives to educate, inspire, and enhance appreciation of the relationship between plant life and a healthy environment.

From our staff and local experts to regional cultural partners from across Louisville and Kentuckiana, we are excited to share knowledge and enthusiasm.

Adult classes and workshops have a focus in the areas of:

  • Horticulture and Gardening
  • Art and Design
  • Science and Environment
  • Health and Wellness
  • Nature Photography
  • City and Waterway History
  • Distance Tours/Trips

Throughout the year, during two semesters of education programs, the Gardens offers lectures, hands-on workshops, demonstrations, and specialty learn-and-socialize events. Our adult offerings require advance registration and are open to both WBG members and the general public. The majority of in-person learning opportunities will take place at the Graeser Family Education Center, with occasional workshops and culinary demonstrations at our satellite facility at The Avish Estate.
