Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Hazel Hare Center for Plant Science!

  • Greenhouse West - a 5,300 square foot fully automated and environmentally  controlled facility for housing thousands of the Garden's  plants
  • Marley Horticulture Learning Lab - an indoor/outdoor facility that will host the Garden's Desert Landscape School and support new experiential learning opportunities
  • Cohn Ironwood Courtyard - a space that encompasses and expands upon an existing outdoor area for use by staff and volunteers
Also featured in the Hazel Hare Center for Plant Science: 
  • Ottosen Great Wall – pays tribute to the beauty of Arizona’s geological features and provides a beautiful boundary between the public and behind-the-scenes work areas
