As of June 1, 2017, the Memphis Botanic Garden airs a one-hour, weekly radio program called At the Garden.

This new show focuses on the programs and activities that are happening here at our Garden. Each week, meet different guests who share behind-the-scenes looks at Garden horticulture, events, educational activities, and other areas of interest unique to the Garden. The program is available as a weekly podcast (links below.)

At the Garden features timely guests who come from the dedicated and knowledgeable staff of the Memphis Botanic Garden, as well as local, outside experts and personalities in their fields. A casual format allows hosts and guests to have fun while listeners learn a bit about horticulture, upcoming events at the Garden, and more!
