Virtual Visit Talks
You’ll want to keep an eye on the Houston Botanic Garden’s event calendar for virtual talks. The Virtual Visit webinar series invites horticulturalists and friends to talk about a fascinating topic. Guests have spoken about the science behind maintaining the wetland gardens, the challenges of cultivating culinary plants, and more. The unique format showcases both pre-recorded interviews and a live Q&A. It’s interactive, educational, and fun.
Watch & Learn
You’ll easily get hooked on the Watch & Learn video series. These videos feature community members, like Keisha Griggs of Ate Kitchen, to teach the different ways horticulture connects to culture. For instance, you’ll find videos tackling subjects such as the roots of Caribbean cuisine and the importance of gardening to Vietnamese culture. These beautiful videos demonstrate how much the garden cares about community.
