Master Gardener Idea Bed

Judith and George Mynsberge generously endowed this garden to give Master Gardener Volunteers an opportunity to share their creative garden design skills and ideas. This bed is located between the rose garden and Food Toxicology building, near the VIP garden.  (See the map below, in the lower left corner).
