Green initiatives at NBG are extending past the gardens and into the classrooms. We’re incorporating more
programming than ever before focusing on green practices, such as zero waste living, sustainable gardening
techniques, and even upcycled art classes.
You’ll find all of these programs and more in our course calendar and catalog,
GROW, which will be arriving in homes three times a year with DIG, as it was in
this edition. This small change not only reduces the amount of resources used in
printing, but also allows us to combine deliveries, which is another small way to
reduce our carbon footprint. Initiatives like this are happening across the board
here at NBG. With all the changes in the Education Department, we’ve decided to
dive head first into our new mindset and celebrate Earth Day all month long in April
to showcase many of our new environmentally-minded programs at the Garden.
In addition to new types of programming, we’re now able to offer CEUs (Continuing
Education Credits) for qualifying classes from various organizations, as well as
offering more free walk and talks to encourage both education and exploration
of the Garden.
