The Gardens at Heather Farm is an independent nonprofit organization operating a free public garden, education center and special event venue on 6.5 picturesque acres in the heart of Walnut Creek, CA.
The vision of a family focused and educational garden started in 1968 when founders recognized not only the beauty of the rolling hillside in Walnut Creek’s Ygnacio Valley, but also a need in the community to bring focus back to nature and make it accessible to all. The Gardens today reflect the unified efforts of those who have (and still are) investing their time, talents, and financial resources to make this community all it can be.
A Certified Wildlife Habitat and Certified Green Business, The Gardens at Heather Farm (GHF) provides six acres of gardens for public enjoyment and educational programs for youth and adults. A qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, GHF is self-supporting through memberships, fundraisers, grants, private donations, facility rentals and program fees. It is through community support and involvement by both organizations and individuals that we are able to pursue our mission. Thank you!
The Gardens at Heather Farm enriches the community through the beauty and environmental stewardship of our gardens, provides educational programs for adults and children, and offer venues for social and cultural events.
