NYBG offers a wealth of courses in topics to help you better understand plants and the natural world around you. Choose from one-day workshops and lectures or our multi-week courses offering more in-depth training. The NYBG Botany and Horticulture programs gave me the opportunity to develop my knowledge in plant science, and explore a variety of fields and practices. My decision to enroll at NYBG has been nothing short of life changing; what began as an impulse to pursue my passion for plants quickly blossomed into a deeply rewarding new career path. Graduating with a certificate in Sustainable Garden Design was not only a rich and deeply engaging personal growth experience, but also gave me the confidence and technical expertise to launch my landscape and garden design business. The structured curriculum, the time frame, and the quality of experienced industry instructors were all key reasons I chose the NYBG program. The skills and confidence I gained really helped me discover and better define my creative style as a floral designer.
New classes started March 23rd but they go slow and are self-paced. Plenty of time to join and catch up! My name is Marc Williams and i will be the main facilitator of our journey. This website is a continuation of the work of the amazing ethnobotanist, explorer, and humanitarian Frank Cook seen pictured here on the right. More information on Frank's continuing legacy can be found at www. In addition i received multiple scholarships and a fellowship to defray expenses as well. However, in honor of Frank's tradition this class is held by donation!
