About GROWing Together

To ensure the safety of our community, all in-person educational programs for children and families are suspended through September.

If the situation allows, we will reschedule programs for a later date. In the meantime, please explore virtual classes and activities from the Education team. 

If you have questions or concerns, please email the following:

  • Volunteer Opportunities: volunteer@brit.org
  • Education Programs: mschmidlkofer@brit.org

Welcome!

With both the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas as educational resources, GROW offers hands-on, nature-based educational programming to local families. Due to the current situation, Bella Book and Nature Club and Little Sprouts Book and Garden Club have moved online with interactive virtual experiences which are free to all. Follow the links to register and GROW with us!
