Following recommendations from federal and state officials for the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of concern for our employees and guests, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will continue its closure through May 31. Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact the Conservatory for details.

If you'd like to help the Conservatory through this unprecedented challenge, please visit the Philanthropy page.

Teen Corps is a high-impact, community-supported summer program for eligible teens designed to teach life and work skills through hands-on experiences in urban farming.

While working in a community garden to grow produce, and then selling it through their own stand at the Conservatory’s Farmers’ Market, teens learn about horticulture, the environment, health and nutrition, entrepreneurship, communication and self-reliance.

All application materials must be submitted online or arrive at the Conservatory by April 1. No late or incomplete applications will be accepted.
