The garden was established in 1995 by a dedicated group of Master Gardener volunteers. Since then, 14 demonstration areas have been created to help educate the community about plants that grow on the Gulf Coast and research-based horticulture practices. Each year, Master Gardeners offer two garden festivals which are free to the public and feature talks and a plant sale. There are also monthly ‘Garden Talks’ that feature plants and practices in the various demonstrations. The gardens are located behind the Extension office at 3740 Stefani Road.
