The purpose of the Herb Garden is to showcase herbs that can be used in everyday cooking (to enhance flavor), in the making of herbal teas, and for crafting, such as making swags and wreaths.

The purpose of the Butterfly Garden is to attract and sustain an assortment of butterflies, bees and other pollinators by providing nectar and pollen sources from a variety of plants including perennials and annuals. These plants provide diverse shapes, sizes and colors. Trees located near the Butterfly Garden provide food for the caterpillars and some shelter through the winter months.
