A place for horticultural research, learning and fun in the heart of Illinois State University and McLean county.


The Center provides a focal point and support for horticultural instruction and scholarship, as well as public demonstration and outreach. Community members can take part in our many events offered throughout the year. Our students are actively engaged in their experiences, and learn from top-notch faculty. Future development will entail a building that will contain classrooms, offices, labs, greenhouses and several gardens.

We appreciate the support we receive from alumni and donors. Your gifts are instrumental in helping the Center expand and continue to provide high-quality learning, research and facilities to students and the community.

For more information about these and other upcoming activities, contact Director Jessica Chambers at (309) 438-3496 or .
