Discovery Field Trips begin for 2015
On September 21, a new year of Discovery Field Trips got underway. Birmingham schoolchildren explored many of The Gardens’ collections, including the Dr. George Washington Carver Garden, where they learned about crop rotation and about how peanuts and cotton are grown. Each year, Birmingham Botanical Gardens provides a free, curriculum-based science education to approximately 10,000 Birmingham students through Discovery Field Trips. Those educational opportunities are made possible by the generosity of donors, sponsors, members and fundraisers like Spring and Fall Plant Sales and Antiques at The Gardens.
