Welcome KSU Gardens

The KSU Gardens is a horticulture display garden that has been established as an educational resource and learning laboratory for K-State students and the visiting public. The KSU Gardens is a privately funded project, located on the campus of Kansas State University. When completed, the Gardens will be a 19-acre garden, designed to show hardscape and tested ornamental plant material in different aesthetic settings. The site is being developed and maintained by the Department of Horticulture, Forestry and Recreation Resources.

The Gardens Project will allow students to be actively involved in the ongoing development, maintenance, and operation of this world class garden. In addition to the hands-on learning experience for students in the horticulture program, students from other programs such as engineering; landscape architecture; apparel, textiles, and interior design; and the art program will all play a part in development of the Gardens.

The gala theme is “Sow the Seeds of Victory”.  You will be entertained by big band music while strolling through the gardens, enjoy the many wonderful hors d’oeuvres, and have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items. We promise you an enjoyable evening and hope to give you a glimpse of how gardens became a very important part of the World War II era.
