About The Garden
Welcome to the Garden
The Garden is a community for the curious, a place where inquisitive minds can come together to learn from world experts and join in conversations about topics that spark wonder.
Our mission is to cultivate curiosity, everyday. We aim to give anyone, anywhere, access to the knowledge, ideas and people who have shaped — and continue to shape — our understanding of our world.
We encourage you to pull up a seat, invite your friends and stay awhile.
Go deep on topics you already love, or explore ideas that spark your interest.
Attend talks live, or watch them in your own time.
Come with questions, and leave with more!
We believe that ideas should be shared freely; questions should be valued; conversation should be respected.
What you can expect
The Garden is in Beta now, which means we’re just getting started, and we’d love feedback from valued members like you as the experience grows over time. We’re working with a network of academics, authors, journalists, naturalists and scientists to develop curated collections of on demand and live virtual talks.
Currently you can browse & register for live talks, watch past talks on demand, enjoy live conversations and ask questions to our experts.
In the future, we want to delight you with unexpected recommendations and create opportunities for meaningful conversations with your fellow Garden members.
Who are we?
We are a diverse community of people with a shared love of learning who support and encourage each other. No matter your background, age, religion, gender, ethnicity or educational level, everyone is welcome in The Garden; we were all once the ‘why child’ and we love to learn because it makes us feel more alive.
We are a welcoming, tolerant, respectful community that fuels the fascination of our members and brings the joy back into learning. We seek to cultivate curiosity in each other and our world, delve deeper into topics and ideas that spark our interest and engage with each other from a place of connection, community and care.
