The Queen Creek Botanical Gardens inspire and educate about elegant edible plants, showing the future of sustainable food production in landscaping. The 10-acre Gardens feature the only fully-operational industrial-age water mill in the American Southwest, shops, and themed demonstration gardens. The Gardens will provide a place to escape, enjoy the beauty of nature, and learn more about food security through community resources. Fruits, vegetables and other food produced at the Gardens will be available for purchase at the gift shop, or through a weekly produce-subscription service.

Unique among botanical gardens, all of the plants in the gardens are edible -fruits, vegetables, herbs or edible flowers have been individually selected for their aesthetic style and elegance. 

Future developments at the Gardens include a reception center, and state of the art conservatory with an education center and expanded exhibits.



Our mission is to exhibit excellence in the world-class artistry, innovation and practice of elegant, edible landscaping to educate and inspire sustainable applications, including hyper-local food production, at home and in communities worldwide.


To accomplish our mission, we: 

  • Model hyper-local, sustainable food production practices
  • Develop educational programs and services that teach regenerative sustainability 
  • Exhibit plants, designs and artistry that inspire others 
  • Collaborate with nature, people and organizations
  • Show enthusiasm for what we do and who we serve
  • Cultivate innovation and research into new and proven methodologies
