Welcome to the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens!

Wellesley College Botanic Gardens serves the campus and public community as an educational garden, with thousands of diverse plant species across 22 acres of outdoor gardens, greenhouses, and a visitor center, within the College campus. From the award-winning Global Flora conservatory, which champions sustainable design, to the innovative Edible Ecosystem teaching garden, an experimental food forest, students and visitors of all ages can find inspiring ways to connect with plants and the environment. We welcome all visitors, with free admission and guided tours.
