The Evolution of Peckerwood Garden
Founded by artist John G. Fairey in the early 1970’s. Peckerwood Garden has been open to the public since 1998 under the auspices of the Peckerwood Garden Conservation Foundation, which manages the garden and offers educational programs. In 2008, the Foundation purchased the adjacent nursery property, which will ultimately be the center for research, education, and public programs at Peckerwood. The Campaign for Peckerwood will make it possible for the Foundation to move forward with its ambitious plans for the future of the garden as a public resource.
We welcome support from the public as we make this transition and create a significant educational center for horticulture, conservation, art, and recreation here at Peckerwood Garden. Just 40 miles from the edge of Houston, the garden is an oasis and retreat, a conserved green space protecting a valuable collection of plants, a visual delight for gardeners and those who love art and beauty. It is truly a garden for the 21st century. Please join us as a member of the Friends of Peckerwood and help us sustain and develop John Fairey’s vision for the future.
