This two-day training takes place at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Gardens, located near the downtown city of Des Moines and sits along the Principal Riverwalk. It has planted some deep history in the Des Moines area as it has been in the works since 1929. The venue is made up of a seven-acre garden and aims to provide guests with an educational and interactive experience. Meeting attendees can enjoy exploring their various outdoor and indoor gardens that work to create a unique experience no matter what season you are visiting. The indoor Conservatory and Gardeners Show House will make a cold December day in Iowa feel like you are enjoying a beautiful summer stroll in the park.
The address of this venue is 909 Robert D. Ray Dr, Des Moines. The venue suggests not to use GPS to navigate arrival, so they have provided directions from their website – see the detailed instructions here. To get in touch with the venue for any further questions please call (515) 323-6290.
During your training, you are able to still enjoy the amazing sights with floor-to-ceiling windows and a front seat view of the Dorothy and Max Rutledge Conifer Garden. We encourage you to take time to explore during your time here at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Gardens to truly understand all it has to offer!
