The Pioneer Unit supports two different public gardens:

McAshan Herb Gardens

These gardens at Festival Hill in Round Top are an extensive array of plantings that feature herbs and ornamental plants in a variety of ways. The oldest gardens were planted in the early 1990’s by garden curator Madalene Hill. These gardens include the Mary Garden in the Cloister Garden, The Mediterranean Garden, and the Wall Gardens. Read More

Sensory Garden
