We are not primarily a garden for the production of food, although there are
90 members who have individual tiny (4ftx3 foot) plots that can grow a few
tomatoes, some greens and herbs, etc) We are pprimarily famous for our
ornamental gardens, particularly tulip time.....and for the fact that we are
(although a private non for profit organization) open to the public during the day,
every day when the weather is clement. We are particularly friendly to small
children and the elderly.
