The Domes are a pillar to the education of Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. The FOD Adult Education Program's goal is to provide powerful experiences to our visitors and members with the use of this unique and globally diverse facility. We look forward to welcoming members of our plant-loving community to the Domes and other venues across the greater Milwaukee area for fun-filled workshops and classes.
