From The earliest recorded history of man, gardens have held an important place in the human culture. That importance continues to this day. They provide a place of peace and tranquility, a place of beauty, cultural importance, and educational opportunities.

Our inspiration is to provide a place where people could experience through all their senses the essence of California. Through hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch they would learn what makes California the exceptionally unique place it has become, from the first people who walked here and plants they found, to all the cultures California has today and the plants they brought.
