Growing Roses in Florida | February 9  Buy Tickets

Mable Ringling loved both roses and Italy. Her first landscape project on the Ringling property was completed in 1913, representing an Italian Rose Garden.

Learn how to prepare a garden, plant, prune, fertilize, water, and care for roses in the Florida climate. Karen Smith, the curator of Mable Ringling’s rose garden, will walk you through everything you need to know to add roses to your southern garden. 

Making a Japanese Variant of Bonsai, Kokedama | March 9  Buy Tickets

In this hands-on workshop you will learn the art of making a Kokedama moss ball.  This indoor garden can be hung or placed in a decorative dish.  We will meet in the Chao Lecture Hall for a brief production and then we will be working outside. Join us and use your imagination to create your own living master piece.

Test Your Senses | March 23  Buy Tickets

The perception of odors - our sense of smell - is mediated by the olfactory nerve in the brain. Humans can discriminate at least 1 trillion olfactory stimuli. A favorable scent can boost your mood or stir up old memories. Come join us to discuss and take an olfactory tour of the wide range of fragrances that occur on our grounds.  We will begin the program in the Chao Lecture Hall


Workshops include a talk and discussion in the Museum of Art, Chao Lecture Hall followed by a walking tour tailored to the topic. Please wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes.
