It all goes back to our Mission:

The Mission of Goodell Gardens & Homestead is to create beautiful gardens and natural spaces where people visit to enjoy, gather, learn, and refresh.

  • Enjoy the beauty of both manicured gardens and natural spaces. 
  • Gather for events and celebrations both large and small. 
  • Learn about plants, land stewardship, and their importance to humanity and the ecosystem. 
  • Refresh your mind, body, and spirit.

With our learning-centric Mission, Goodell Gardens strives to offer high-quality educational programming to our visitors. From Garden Sprouts Preschool to our informational signage, we try to promote understanding of plants in a way that we hope would make the Goodell sisters proud. They were both teachers, after all!
