Filoli inspires continued education and supports personal growth and enjoyment by offering programs for adults, children, and families. Topics such as history, horticulture, art, botanical art, decorative arts, floral design, nature, and preservation are taught by knowledgeable instructors.

“Filoli is increasingly doing a fantastic job of public events and using the preserved historical site as an active, evolving educational experience and preserving and enriching beauty in a world that needs to have as many of these opportunities as possible and to connect people with nature, visual and sound as well.”
“We endeavor to ensure that our programs, including the support of research, involve and broaden learning.”
