Peckerwood Garden has been widely acclaimed for design originality, the breadth of its collections, and its education and conservation programs. The garden features an extraordinary variety of plants that are well-suited to Houston and Austin area climates, including Pinus, magnolia, agave, prunus, Camellia, Quercus, and many other species collected by John Fairey and his colleagues during their plant expeditions in Mexico.
Peckerwood Garden is open for tours in part to raise funds to sustain the garden, continue our plant research, and our desire to share our collection of plants with like minded, interested people. Tour groups may consist of horticultural groups, garden clubs, art groups and/or any interested parties – on Open Days we get a wide range of interests.
Focused training will follow in monthly sessions that are open to all active volunteers. Maps, notes, outlines, and digital files will be available for your use. Contact Bethany Jordan with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 979-826-3232.
