A nice place with green houses and quite walkways thruout the property. A little run down and in need of care, but enjoyable. Not sure if tours are available, which would be nice as the plants are not labeled for identification.

This family owned garden showcase was fun and educational. The people doing the presentation were very enthusiastic and loved their job. Lunch was nice and was all locally sourced and organic.
