Explore the outdoors with your children ages 18 months to 3 years at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Come spend your morning in the garden as we enjoy story time and activities with Carlos the Cactus! This month we will be reading the book, “Because of An Acorn” by Lola Schaefer. Get your hands dirty as we dig our way to discover what acorns need to survive and what it takes to become a big, strong, tree over time. See you there!

Free (including garden admission) for all children under 6 years old and accompanying caregivers (limit 2 adults). Regular admissions rates apply to all additional individuals.  

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please enter through the Garden Center (Welcome Center) to check-in. There will be a free tram service to transport you and your family to this program at the Backyard Veggie Garden! We recommend arriving 15-20 minutes early to account for tram transportation time.

*No programs in July, December, January, & February.*

Location: Backyard Veggie Garden

Parking: Botanic Garden Welcome Center (free)

Tram drop-off: Circle drive by the Backyard Veggie Garden

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!
