Program Information

Location: Most classes will take place at BRIT or at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Some classes and workshops will be taught off campus and/or may include field trips to other locations around North Central Texas.

Cost: Class tuition varies depending on the length of the class and materials needed. Please see the individual class listings for exact prices.

Who should attend: GROW Adult Ed classes are designed for adults 18 and older. Interested children 14 and older are invited to attend classes with a parent or guardian if both individuals purchase a seat. Please don't hesitate to contact Erin Starr White if you have any questions about this policy.

Helpful Tip: Since you never know where GROW Adult Ed might take you, we recommend that participants dress comfortably in clothes that are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor adventures. A sweater is recommended for air conditioned environments, and closed toe shoes are always a good idea. Please check individual class listings for any specific requirements and, as always, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at a GROW Adult Education class soon!

We apologize for the inconvenience, but this class has been cancelled. 

Join Tarrant County Master Gardener Rita Hottel to discuss how best to use local herbs in oils, vinegars, and salad dressings and discover inventive ways to use your new creations. Come expand your culinary skills and go beyond the expected combination of red wine vinegar and olive oil. Don’t miss this chance to taste and take home some new ideas and easy recipes that provide a big range of flavors for everyday cooking.

After becoming a Master Gardener in 2000, instructor Rita Hottel quickly found her niche in herbs. She is currently the Lead Gardener of the Herb Garden at the Tarrant County Master Gardener Community/Education Garden. Even though she was trained in all aspects of gardening, herb gardening was the perfect complement to her other hobby of cooking. 

We apologize for the inconvenience, but this class has been cancelled.
