How does the One-for-One Friend Referral program work?


Tinkergarten has long been on a mission to get all families learning outdoors together, and now, we can all do our part to help. Through our new One-for-One Referral Program, each time you refer a friend who enrolls in Online Circle Time, you’ll enable a family in need of financial support to receive a free spot in a class. 

Friends and family from around the corner or anywhere in the country can enjoy Tinkergarten together.  Who can you invite in order to help families who need this critical connection and support for their children this fall? 

How to refer friends and help families: 

You can find and automatically send your unique referral link anytime by visiting You will need to have and be logged into a free Tinkergarten account in order to share.
