About the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden

Our mission statement: to honor and preserve our connections with nature.

What makes our connection to nature unique is our focus on the role of plants upon which all life is dependent. We tell the story of Mediterranean plants on the five continents and their role in advancing human endeavors and cultures. These stories connect visitors and the plant world.
