We are deeply honored to be the the first-ever recipient of The American Horticultural Society’s new Garden Stewardship Award, which recognizes a public garden that embraces and exemplifies sustainable horticultural practices in design, maintenance, and/or programs.

Our horticulture staff incorporate a conservation ethic into every aspect of their work, from plant selection and landscape design to water use, integrated pest management, renewable energy, and recycled and reused materials.
