Mission Statement

Public gardens have a powerful and positive impact on the health, environment and economy of a region. They make it a better place to live. The Mission of The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park is to design, build and manage a year-round botanical garden in Northwest Michigan for the purposes of botanical and environmental preservation, education and research, and the enjoyment and renewal of citizens and visitors.

Description

Located in the heart of Traverse City - on the beautiful grounds of Historic Barns Park - The Botanic Garden will be a year-round sanctuary of environmental preservation, recreation and education. Its 25 acres will nurture the soul, enliven our history and promote Michigan’s natural beauty. With an emphasis on plant species native to northwest Michigan, it will create and enhance habitats for various forms of wildlife. As a place of refreshment and solace, The Botanic Garden’s unique and original design will inform and inspire. After over a decade of careful planning and preparation, the garden is coming alive.

The future will include development of additional gardens as per the master site plan, including healing gardens, edible gardens, a children’s garden, and others, as well as an ever-expanding menu of educational and recreational activities.
