Ongoing Educational Activities at the Gardens
Are you new to Tucson or new to gardening here? Our monthly Signature Classes will help unravel the mysteries of gardening in the Sonoran Desert. You will gain a basic understanding of the local climate, soil, water and plants, and you’ll take home tips to help your own garden thrive. Signature Classes are offered every month, and no pre-registration is required. Whenever you’re ready to dive in and get to know your backyard desert landscape, drop in for a class–or the whole series. View full descriptions, pricing and schedules.
With 5.5 acres encompassing 17 specialty gardens , Tucson Botanical Gardens offers a beautiful array of landscapes to explore. Wandering is encouraged, but we also offer several regularly-scheduled guided tours throughout the month. These docent-led tours, which are included with regular Gardens admission, are an excellent way to get your bearings, learn about the rich history of the Gardens or familiarize yourself with some of the Sonoran Desert’s most fascinating flora and fauna.
