We are always looking for new people to assist in our beautiful Garden, but you don't have to be a gardener to volunteer at the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden! We have a place for every skill- accounting, clerical, marketing, engineering, public relations, business development, librarian, salesclerk and the list goes on.

Mission Statement

The mission of the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden is to display the diverse plant life of the Mediterranean climate zones of the world and to provide opportunities for education, recreation, conservation and research. Through its programs and facilities, the Garden will foster an appreciation and understanding of the relationship between people and nature and will encourage a sense of stewardship toward the natural environment.

Description

The San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden is located in El Chorro Regional Park, halfway between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay on Highway One. It currently consists of a 2.5 acre Preview Garden, Propagation facilities, a Childrens Garden of Exploration, and two straw bale constructed, solar powered buildings, one of which is an educational/meeting facility and the second which is our offices and Library. Our Master Plan envisions a 150 acre garden dedicated to creating and interpreting the Mediterranean climate regions of the world- coastal California, Central Chile, the tip of South Africa, coastal south and southwestern Australia, and the Mediterranean Basin region. This focus is unique in the world of botanical gardens and is part of our effort to link people with plants from around the world that can be grown here in a sustainable manner. You can find out more about what we have been doing at the Garden from our website, www.slobg.org or on our Facebook page.
