About Us

Powell Gardens is a not-for-profit botanical garden located just east of Kansas City, Missouri. Our mission: to be an experience that embraces the Midwest's spirit of place and inspires an appreciation for the importance of plants in our lives.

Set on 970 acres of lush, rolling hills and windswept meadows, Powell Gardens offers breathtaking display gardens, interesting architecture, a nature trail and a year-round calendar of special events and classes for the entire family.

The Gardens receive support from foundations, corporations, individuals, the Friends of Powell Gardens and income generated through admissions, gift shop sales and rentals. For more information, see our profile at DonorEdge.

Powell Gardens is known for its spectacular garden displays incorporating native plantings and the Heartland Harvest Garden, the nation's largest edible landscape.

Powell Gardens also is known for its contemporary architecture by the architectural firm originally established by Fay Jones, now Maurice Jennings Architects. The Gardens can be rented for weddings, receptions, ceremonies and other private events.
