The gardens feature a broad variety of regionally-appropriate plants selected by Master Gardeners and UC Davis Arboretum staff for their educational and ornamental value. In response to strong visitor interest, wildlife-attracting, native, and drought-tolerant plants form the backbone of the plantings. Edible plantings connect the gardens to the bounty of the nearby Farmers Market and Davis Farm to School Connection programs.
The long, narrow site is well-suited for separation into several distinctly themed “garden rooms” that visitors can stroll between. Click each theme garden title to see pictures and a description of each garden.
