The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks has a very different history from most, which typically got their start through a donation of a private garden or a large financial contribution. The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks (BGO) began as a grassroots effort with never enough money to do things easily. The result, a garden built by many loving hands and with readily available materials, is approachable, even whimsical, and speaks to the character of the place in which it lives and the people who make it work.

Beginning in 1993, the founders enlisted volunteers, created a vision, raised funds and secured from the City of Fayetteville a long-term lease on land which became BGO’s home. The vision they agreed upon was for a circle of themed “backyard gardens” which would teach local residents about gardening in the challenging environment of Northwest Arkansas and provide enjoyment for all.
