A new education building, the Dorothy Fox Education Centre is complete and was officially opened by the Duke of Devonshire on Wednesday 15 March 2017.
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 gives flexible space including 3 classrooms which can be opened up to create a large lecture area. The centre offers educational opportunities for schools, practical courses for adult learners, as well as a programme of lectures, demonstrations, art classes and photography courses.
