It would be hard to name a place with greater diversity than California.

The Garden will celebrate California’s diverse environments and the indigenous and immigrant groups that have melded together to form her rich and unique heritage.

Demonstrated within The Garden will be the impact of these groups’ contributions on our plants, agriculture, technologies, culture, culinary and medicinal traditions, our land, and the economy.

Each culture has its own story. The California Garden will be a place for them to be told to the world.
