Phase 1C | The Garden Expansion
The planned focus of Phase 1C is the development of the Ellen T. Leslie Botanical Classrooms. This 6,000 square foot building will be the center of youth education in Phase 1 and will complement the larger space provided by the Graeser Family Education Center. The Tree Allée will be filled with two dozen American Dream™ Swamp White Oak trees, benches, and a paved walkway. The Beargrass Creek Overlook will showcase a beautiful view of the creek and the wetlands beyond.

Phase 1 of the Gardens will focus on our mission, education. The Ellen T. Leslie Botanical Classrooms will sit across the plaza from the Graeser Family Education Center. This 6,000 square foot complex will include a Learning Lab, Teaching Greenhouse, Courtyard and Horticulture Workshop. These teaching spaces will provide space for students to work with plants, have access to virtual learning opportunities, and other hands-on learning challenges.
