Due a recent change in registration systems, all Arboretum Society members will need to register and create a new account to receive membership discounts for adult education classes. Previous email addresses and passwords will not be recognized by the new system. Once you've selected a class, create a new login and password by clicking on the "Register" button at the top right of the screen before purchasing tickets or signing up for a class. The membership discount will then show up in the shopping cart before billing information is requested.

The North Carolina Arboretum’s Adult Education program consists of more than 140 classes taught by some of the region’s leading experts. New classes are released every six months in February and August. All classes can be found online or in the Arboretum’s “Growing in Mind” Adult Education print catalog. Click on the core subjects below to see a list of current classes offered and registration information.

Classes fill up quickly, so be sure to pre-register and pay in advance. Arboretum Society members receive a discount on class registration fees. By registering, participants agree to the Liability Waiver; read the Liability Waiver here.

Adult Education Program support provided in part by Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park and The Laurel of Asheville.
