Program Information

Location: Most classes will take place at BRIT or at the FW Botanic Garden. Some classes and workshops will be taught off campus and/or may include field trips to other locations around North Central Texas.

Cost: Class tuition varies depending on the length of the class and materials needed. Please see the individual class listings for exact prices.

Who should attend: GROW Adult Ed classes are designed for adults 18 and older. Interested children 14 and older are invited to attend classes with a parent or guardian if both individuals purchase a seat. Please don't hesitate to contact Laura Venhaus if you have any questions about this policy.

Nice to Know: Since you never know where GROW Adult Ed might take you, we recommend that participants dress comfortably in clothes that are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor adventures. A sweater or light jacket is a good idea in case the A/C is working too well and closed toe shoes are always a good idea. Please check individual class listings for any specific requirements and, as always, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at a GROW Adult Ed class soon!

** This class is a replacement for our originally scheduled Grafting Japanese Maples and Air Layering Rubber Trees which was cancelled due to the untimely demise of our rubber trees during the recent cold snap. **

Join Scott Hubble, owner of Metro Maples, who will discuss the ideal location, planting techniques, and overall care for Japanese maples in your landscape. Hubble will also detail some of the different cultivars of Japanese maples, discussing growth habit, foliage texture, and foliage colors. Class participants will graft their own Japanese maple to take home and grow.

Instructor Scott Hubble became interested in plants in 2006 when he made a trip to Metro Maples to buy a tree for his front yard and quickly became hooked! He was hired as the first employee of Metro Maples and had the pleasure of working with owner Keith Johansson for ten years. In 2016 Hubble purchased Metro Maples. Hubble feels incredibly fortunate to to be doing this for a living and he is happy to pass along the knowledge he has gained over the years. To learn more about Metro Maples, please click here:

Please Note: This class will take place in the Classroom at BRIT.
