The Cutler Botanic Garden is a center for teaching horticulture and environmental issues. The garden encourages an appreciation of the environment and helps teach the value of natural resources through educational activities. The purpose is to help participants teach themselves to grow plants with minimal negative effect on the environment.
14 themed areas are represented in Cutler Botanic Garden: Propagation, Hemerocallis, Composting and Rain barrel demonstration, Shade Garden, Perennials, Heath & Heathers, Rock Garden, Native Habitats, Ornamental Grasses, Herbs, Roses and Vegetable Garden, a Hydrangea collection along with several annual flower beds. In the fall of 2023 several improvements were made to the gardens. Rock walls were rebuilt, stone steps added, a newly designed water feature, a wildflower meadow, a hardscape labyrinth and a new event space.
Cutler Botanic Garden is free and open to the public year round from dawn to dusk for self-guided tours.
Cutler Botanic Garden is one of approximately 360 gardens in the United States designated as a display garden of All-America Selections. Each year, Cutler Botanic Garden staff previews the AAS winners that will be available commercially the following year. The AAS is a non-profit, educational organization for evaluating new varieties from around the country.
The community uses the garden for a variety of activities. It provides an outdoor classroom where local students are introduced to the plant kingdom. Adult classes in subjects such as annuals, perennials, roses, Integrated Pest Management, and composting include hands-on workshops in the garden.
