Team Building Workshops

How It Works

Team building workshops are available to UW students, staff and faculty. You provide the venue, and the Garden will provide everything else! Groups are also welcome to host a workshop in the Garden, weather permitting.* 

*The Garden does not have any indoor locations.

 

How To Make a Reservation

Contact Elin Meliska at meliska@wisc.edu to book a workshop.

Plant related workshops require a minimum of 5 participants, and other workshops require a minimum of 10 participants. 

The Garden also requires an official headcount three weeks before a workshop with 30 or less participants, and an official headcount four weeks before a workshop with over 30 participants. 

 

How Does Payment Work?

1.) Participants can pay via cash or check, on the day of the workshop OR

2.) The Garden will send an invoice via email that can be paid by an interdepartmental transfer.
