The Garden hosts an exciting day of tours and activities exclusively for homeschool groups and families. Supplement your life science, botanical and environmental studies curriculum by observing the diverse plants growing in the Fuqua Conservatory such as tropical conifers, breathtaking orchids and bizarre succulents. Tip-toe through the treetops on the Canopy Walk and visit the Edible Garden to learn more about the plants we eat.
