This self-guided experience encourages scout groups and families to explore the basics of garden design as they learn how to plan for a successful garden! This program is designed to meet the needs of the Junior Gardener Girl Scout Badge requirements. Denver Botanic Gardens does not supply activity badges.
Girl Scouts will:

  • Explore garden design basics
  • Identify perennial and annual plants
  • Design, plant and decorate a miniature indoor garden oasis take home with them
  • Take home the materials to set up a seed experiment on their own

Program Capacity: Each program time can accommodate up to 20 people (both Girl Scouts and adults). Groups larger than 10 people will be split into two smaller groups and explore the program separately. Adult to girl safety ratios must be met.

Program Location and Weather Considerations: This program is designed to take place completely outdoors. In the event of weather that prohibits the comfortable use of our outdoor spaces, you have the options of completing the program indoors or picking up materials to complete the activities at home.

Price: $12 per Girl Scout; one adult per three Girl Scouts are admitted free of charge. Additional adults and non-participating siblings are $7 each. Non-participating infants (children 2 and under) are free.

Registration Instructions: Please complete the following registration form for your group. You will receive a response within 72 hours confirming your reservation and instructions regarding submitting payment. Groups wishing to participate as a troop must submit one registration form per troop. Each registration form submission will be considered as a unique group registration. Individual submissions from one troop may result in the troop not being able to participate together.

Cancellations: Cancellations can be made for any reason up to one week before the program. Cancellations with less than one week's notice are non-refundable, except for illness-related cancellations. If you or a member of your party is sick, please stay home.

The following safety procedures and requirements are in place for attending all onsite classes and tours during COVID-19:

  • All adults and children ages 3 and older are required to wear a mask
