About the University of Delaware Botanic Gardens
The University of Delaware Botanic Gardens traces its roots back to the late 1950’s with the planting of specimen trees and shrubs around Townsend Hall at the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR). These early plantings initially supported undergraduate coursework and evolved over time into gardens.
Today, the UD Botanic Garden is a series of twelve gardens on fifteen acres. UDBG continues to be used by faculty, students, Green Industry professionals, and the public, and serves a primary role in supporting the CANR programs in horticulture, plant science, entomology, and landscape design.
UD Botanic Gardens contributes to an understanding of the changing relationships between plants and people through education, extension, research, and community support.
