Delaware Center for Horticulture

The Delaware Center for Horticulture is a non-profit community organization dedicated to spreading a love of gardening conservation through its garden projects and workshops. Visit the DCH’s Display Garden, have a picnic, and visit the vegetable and ornamental plant displays. The teaching garden lets guests study a diverse range of plants, and educational workshops are offered on different elements of horticulture and ecology. Workshops are designed with participants’ age and experience in mind, and are a great way of illustrating the importance of nature while also exercising participants’ own green thumbs. The DCH also offers a library and gallery.
