  • We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Brookesheilds, yes really her name. Very knowledgeable about making chocolate from scratch. Lunch left something to be desired but was okay. The plants and trails and wildlife were awesome. The hummingbirds were an awesome treat!
  • Absolutely wonderful gardens. Breathtaking views from the top look out. Bill the owner introduced himself and showed us around for a bit. This is a nature center and garden. We saw humming birds and other exotic birds... bring your hicking shoes... the Gardens is a must
