The Friends Adult Education Program promotes horticulture, wellness and sustainability. We look forward to welcoming members of our plant-loving community to The Domes and other venues across the greater Milwaukee area for engaging workshops, classes and conferences.

Programs listed on this page are part of the Friends of the Domes adult workshop series (ages 16+ unless otherwise noted). Youth 12-15 are welcome with adult supervision.

All educational offerings require pre-registration and payment prior to the date of the class. You will receive an email 1-3 days before the event with additional information.
