About California Native Garden Foundation


76 RACE ST, SAN JOSE, CA 95126, US

Mission Statement

. . . to demonstrate the beauty, garden worthiness, and ecological appropriateness of California native gardens.


The California Native Garden Foundation is a non-profit educational, research, and resource organization that promotes gardening with California native plants. CNGF’s goal is to increase the popularity and use of California's native plants in the designed landscape. California Native Garden Foundation (CNGF) educates the public and design community on the value of native gardens through classes, field trips, garden tours, and publications. CNGF offers grants and professional assistance to develop programs on ecology, garden design, plant identification, garden building, and garden management.

Grants are awarded to schools, colleges, museums, and public spaces, whose stewards commit to providing help with installation and maintenance. CNGF offers pro bono garden design, native plants (donated by generous native plant nurseries), and volunteer assistance. The resulting planting and care of native gardens provides enjoyment and education to children and adults for years and years.
