Brevard Discovery Garden
The Brevard Discovery Garden (BDG) mission is to promote an increased appreciation of our Central Florida environment. The Garden seeks to inspire, support, and educate the community about horticulture through UF/IFAS research-based demonstrations, collections, and displays. The BDG is being developed by Master Gardener volunteers using a combination of Native, Keystone, and Florida Friendly plants. The Garden will demonstrate the use of horticultural best practices incorporating beneficial plants to enhance our residential landscapes while improving the environment.
Brevard Discovery Garden volunteers are actively working on developing a Pollinator Garden, Herb Garden, Rain/Swale Garden, Bromeliad Garden, and Orchard. The BDG also has a Nursery that collects seeds and propagates plants that will be used in the BDG Garden and provides Florida Friendly inventory for plant sales.
The Brevard Discovery Garden is a 100% volunteer organization. The funding for the BDG comes primarily from plant sales that are held throughout the Fall, Winter, & Spring (September-May). These sales offer the public a great selection of Native, Keystone, and Florida Friendly plants in addition to seasonal herbs & vegetables. You’ll also find a wide range of succulents, often planted in decorative containers, making a perfect gift or patio accent plant.
The BDG will be open for visitors during seasonal plant sales. Guided tours of the garden can be arranged upon request.
Upcoming plant sales:
- Caladium & Blackberry Festival - Saturday, June 25, 2022, from 9 am - 1 pm
The Brevard Discovery Garden and Nursery are adjacent to the UF/IFAS Brevard Extension Office at 3695 Lake Drive, Cocoa, FL 32926.
