AHS Lifelong Learning
The American Horticultural Society conducts 50 educational programs each year to build gardeners’ knowledge, skills, and community.
We believe that learning is a collaborative experience that creates peer and mentor relationships and celebrates collective interests and values. Our programs unite gardeners across the nation, both virtually and in-person.
We select speakers, topics, and formats to feature perspectives from regions and lenses as diverse as America’s gardeners. Lifelong Learning programs address five plant-driven learning areas: science, design, culture, health, and industry. All areas integrate objectives for learning about plant materials and selection, approaches and techniques, and cultivation and maintenance. Program formats include workshops, classes, conversations, talks, tours, and gatherings.
While programs are designed with our members in mind, many of whom are confident gardeners, we encourage plant lovers of all learning levels to participate in these public programs. AHS members receive discounts on registration. Not a member and would like to join? You can sign-up here.
