Welcome to the Marin Edible Garden!
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. - Alfred Austin
The Marin Edible Garden at the Marin Art and Garden Center is a hands-on demonstration and exhibition garden for all ages. We gather here to study horticulture, science, nutrition, cooking, the environment, and our place within it. Our hope is that by empowering our broader community with knowledge about food (and where it comes from!), we can empower them to make healthier choices for both themselves and our planet.
The garden is located at 30 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in the town of Ross, CA. For more location details and driving directions, please visit our Location & Directions page.
So, please join us in the garden! We invite you get your hands dirty, make new friends and revel in the taste of a freshly picked persimmon. We promise the garden will nurture you, body & soul.
