Here at the Garden we are thankful for... Can you guess?... Plants of course! They provide us with oxygen, food, shelter, medicine, and so much more!

Wingthorn Rose

Birds are thankful for plants as well. Plants provide food, habitat, and protection to birds and animals.

We're not only thankful for plants, we are thankful for you - our members and visitors. We wouldn't be a Garden without your support. We wish you a safe and happy thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.
