What you'll learn in this garden class:

The Garfield Park Conservatory on the west side of Chicago was the concept of Prairie School landscape architect Jens Jensen. At the time of its completion in 1908, the conservatory was considered revolutionary for the presentation of the plant collection and specifically themed rooms. This class will focus on the history as well as the current and future usage of the conservatory and Garfield Park.
