Welcome to the Garden
St. George Village Botanical Garden of St. Croix is a private, non-profit organization, established in 1972, that is dedicated to the conservation, education, and preservation of the ethno-botanical heritage of the U S Virgin Islands. It is located on a sixteen acre site just off the Queen Mary Highway. The botanical collections, including over 1500 native and exotic species and varieties, are established in and around the restored buildings and stabilized ruins of a 19th century Danish sugar cane plantation and partially overlap an Amerindian settlement which dates back almost 2,000 years.
The Garden offers a variety of educational programs and activities that focus on the importance of plants and natural resources throughout human history.
Island visitors and residents can experience a unique blend of St. Croix’s botanical, historical, and cultural heritage.
