Promoting Community Through Gardening

Welcome to the Northern Plains Botanic Garden located at 1201 28th Ave N in Fargo, ND. We are in the beginning stages of developing a 52 acre botanic garden for our region. Not only will it be a terrific asset for the residents of the Fargo-Moorhead area, it will also be an incredible destination for those in the entire region. We currently care for the Woodland Garden, a Rain Garden, the enticing Butterfly Garden, a Chrysanthemum Test Garden, a unique Turnaround Garden, and an Alphabet Garden that encourages children to get involved and learn about the horticultural genre. Gardens enhance mental reflection and rejuvenation for all who visit. They encourage the arts through drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. Most importantly, they teach us the elements of nature and how we need a certain balance for our survival in the north.

The next phase is the amazing Garden of Mind and Soul, which will be designed in the Japanese garden style and will be a beautiful amenity to our entire tri-state area. In the years to come, we will also be introducing the four-seasons glass conservatory of tropical flora and the ever-changing arboretum of horticultural education and knowledge. Not only will the gardens be an asset to all who visit for pure enjoyment, it will also provide a learning opportunity for everyone about the numerous plant materials that grow in the harsh region of the north.

We encourage you to support this cause by becoming a member and join in the venture to create something truly beautiful for our region. Nature is the common bond we all have, and with your support we will always be connected. Come and be a part of the journey, come visit the gardens, and enjoy our little secret!
