Wherever you are in your botanical journey, there’s something to discover in our education programs. Deepen your connection to the natural world through our adult education classes—from gardening to botanical art, ecology to photography, landscape design to garden crafts, choose from hands-on workshops, enriching lectures, certificate courses, and multi-day classes. Taught by CMBG staff and regionally or nationally renowned experts in the field, our classes take advantage of the outdoor, living classroom of the Gardens. New in the last year, we also offer online classes for distance learning.
Adult classes at the Gardens strive to emphasize sustainability, enhancing biodiversity, and ecological horticulture. Our botany and ecology courses provide a chance to study Maine’s environment with some of the region’s experts and most enthusiastic teachers. No matter your level of experience, our course offerings inspire everyone to grow as a gardener, an observer of the landscape, and a steward of the natural world.
