K-State Gardens offering tour guide training

Submitted by Sue White

The Kansas State University Gardens need volunteers to be garden docent tour guides.

Training consists of three 1:30-3 p.m. sessions on Wednesdays in March and April in the Gardens Visitor Center Conference Room. The only qualifications necessary are an interest in the Gardens and a willingness to help.

The following is the schedule and topics: 

  • March 29: Gardens history and layout. 
  • April 5: Specialty gardens, collections and south garden tour. 
  • April 12: Interpretation, experienced tour leader panel and practice tour

Due to limited space, registration is necessary. Please call 785-532-3271 and leave a message or email ksugardens@k-state.edu

The Gardens are located at 1500 Denison Ave. in Manhattan.
