 Our gardens

We have a number of large demo gardens that allow you to see the plants and how they grow.  Feel free to roam yourself or we can tour you around and teach you about the plants. Please note that some paths are uneven and that touring the gardens is done so at your own risk. 

The native plant garden started in 2018 to provide habitat for bees, butterflies and birds on an otherwise desolate part of our yard.
