Fairchild aims to provide up-to-date, practical gardening information and techniques to visitors and volunteers. Fairchild’s Horticulture team has prepared a fantastic selection of classes for our volunteers to use in their home gardens, while working at Fairchild, or to share with Garden visitors.

Priority registration is given to volunteers working in horticulture, but classes are open to all volunteers. To register, please call 305.667.1651, ext. 3360 or email All classes will be held on Wednesdays from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in Corbin A unless otherwise noted; classes may also take place outside in the Garden so wear a hat and comfortable shoes. 

Wednesday, March 4: The Secret Lives of Ferns

Mike Freedman, Fairchild Horticulturist, will debunk the myths that ferns are hard to grow, show different types of ferns, and explain how and when to repot them. Bring a baby food-sized jar, if you’d like to plant a fern to take home. If time and conditions allow, there will be a tour of the Garden’s ferns.
