  • The garden’s work program partnerships help train workers in the gardening, landscaping and nursery trades.
  • The garden supports activities that benefit an aging population, helping to keep their minds and bodies engaged in gardening.  Children’s programs teach and inspire children in the garden and in the wild.
  • The garden preserves rare and native species and provides a wonderful venue for the community to meet.
