Education Centre

A new education building, the Dorothy Fox Education Centre is complete and will be officially opened by the Duke of Devonshire on Wednesday 15 March.

The project has only been possible through the constant fundraising by the Sheffield Botanical Gardens Trust (SBGT) and the Friends of the Botanical Gardens, Sheffield (FOBS) and three major legacy donors – Dorothy Fox, Mildred Rushby and Barbara Holland – and The Sheffield Church Burgesses Trust, The J G Graves Charitable Trust and The Freshgate Trust Foundation for their support.

The new centre will give flexible space including 3 classrooms which can be opened up to create a large lecture area. The centre will offer educational opportunities for schools, practical courses for adult learners, as well as a programme of lectures, demonstrations, art classes and photography courses.
