Hope’s Program Open House

Join us as we celebrate recognize the students who have participated in our 2013-2014 Plant Hope Program!

Plant Hope is a multi-session program provided by the Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens. Students in elementary school visit FBBG four times throughout the school year to experience plant-science, nature-driven programming.
