Mt. Cuba Center’s Fall-Winter 2023-2024 Program Guide is packed with expert-led classes focusing on native plants, ecological gardening, conservation, art, and wellness. Our fall event series offers something for everyone, from Sunset and S’mores to Tree Festival and our final Twilight on the Terrace for the year.
Here is a taste of what we have to offer this season:
- Take a crash course in Naturalistic Planting Design with Leah Blanton of the Philadelphia Horticultural Society and get your garden ready for next year.
- Check out one of our Pyrography classes and learn the art of woodburning. Bring home a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork, ornament, or coaster set.
- Get an in-depth look at Hummingbirds: Dynamic Aviators or try your hand at Painting the Marvelous Hummingbird.
- Learn more about North America’s largest native fruit, the papaw, when Rodney Dever is here for Pawpaw: The Susquehanna Banana.
- Attend one or all of our popular online Mt. Cuba Lecture Series and learn about Wild Plant Culture, Edible Landscaping Using Permaculture, or A World of Discovery with Science and Heart, from well-known ecological gardening thought leaders.
Classes are offered both weekdays and weekends, online and in-person, including a new hybrid version of our popular Native Plants of Fall certificate class. In addition to its fall and winter offerings, Mt. Cuba offers Classes On Demand and Online Group Lectures.
There’s something for everyone to find something new to learn this season!
