Gamble Garden

Gamble Garden is a 501(c)(3) organization and private horticultural garden located on 2.5 acres in Palo Alto, CA. We do not receive funding from the city of Palo Alto, the state of California, or the federal government. Gamble Garden relies on donations, membership, and facility rentals. The education garden consists of demonstration beds, vegetable beds, and a picnic area for classes and gatherings. The demonstration beds educate visitors on ornamental, drought-tolerant plants–native and from around the world.

For 30 years, Gamble Garden has been a part of Palo Alto’s history.
