Private Workshops

Fun workshops are available to school, camp, and church groups for ages 6 and up. These workshops are aligned to VI Standards of Learning and are offered for 15-30 students with preferably 3-6 chaperones. These workshops are very interactive and there is a cost of $5 per person to cover the cost of materials.

Workshops take approximately 3 hours and groups are free to eat lunch or peruse the gardens before or after the workshop if they please. For more information and a list of available workshops, email the Education Coordinator at
