Garden Classes represent our signature experiences for school groups visiting the Garden! Led by our Educators, your students will get their hands dirty learning how plants work, the important roles they play in our environment, and the many ways in which we use plants every day. Each program is designed to engage students with inquiry-based conversations, hands-on experiences and content that strengthen curriculum connections to represent a seamless addition to your existing curriculum.
Garden Classes are available Tuesdays–Fridays throughout the year.
We encourage groups to picnic in neighboring Tower Grove Park before or after your visit. To book your reservation at a Tower Grove Park pavilion and/or picnic site, contact email@example.com or (314) 771-2679 for more information.
PlantLab Investigations are programs designed with students grades 3–8 in mind. These 1-hour programs are conducted on-site at the Garden's PlantLab and offer students an opportunity to 'dig deeper' into plant science, learning how plants adapt to different environments, how plants and pollinators interact with each other, fruit formation and more.
Guided Experiences—Students can enjoy a guided tour through the Missouri Botanical Garden, where our Educators will reinforce how plants work and how we use them every day with examples. Students can take pots and plants back to school to pot and bring home!
