Please join us in enjoying the beautiful flowers, abundant vegetable selections, and perennial fruit collection.  Exciting and fun demonstration projects are found throughout the garden: We are an All America Selections location showcasing the best of both ornamentals and vegetables. Stop by to see other demos: Easy Care Perennial Gardening, Rain Garden, organic vegetable production, many fruit trees and vines, and many more………………….

The gardens are open to the public from dawn to dusk, 7 days a week.  The gardens are maintained by summer interns sponsored by the Brittingham Trust. A network of volunteers and Master Gardener apprentices assist during the off-season.
