Once a bustling cotton & tobacco farm, MFBG is now a 65-acre cultivated garden
filled with exuberant plant displays, bounding meadows & enduring vistas of greygreen pines. Woven throughout this aesthetic tapestry are innovative research,
educational programs and community outreach. There are always new discoveries
to delight MFBG visitors, as this is a “gardener’s garden” that evolves with the
seasons. Book a tour, enjoy free entry during scheduled “Garden Open” Days, or
sign up for a class, workshop or special event at MFBG.
