Environmental Education

OSH’s 1.5 acres of gardens provide the foundation for a variety of environmental education programs for adults and children. From Traditional Medicinals – a program for school groups — as well as walks, talks and community programs throughout the year, it’s possible to engage with and draw knowledge from our rich urban landscape.
