Longwood Gardens now offers fully online courses to support our onsite displays. These free courses are self-paced and open for participants to join at any time.

Learn through video lectures, recorded presentations, discussion forums, and more. These massive open online courses (MOOCS) also offer opportunities to share your experiences with fellow enthusiasts.

Our new open course, Everything about Aquatics, is available Now–September 30, 2018.

Learn the identification characteristics, cultural needs, and care of these plants, as well as basic design principles for creating your own aquatic garden. Go behind-the-scenes for a glimpse of how Longwood cares for, propagates, and overwinters its spectacular collection. You can even share your own water gardening experiences with fellow enthusiasts in this informative and fun course.
