Heartland Harvest Garden

Welcome to America’s premier edible landscape—where the trees, shrubs, and flowers are part of the story of where our food comes from. In the heartland of America, this signature garden captures the spirit of Kansas City. Here, our rich soils and prime farmland make agriculture a shining star.

Seasonal display beds inspire home gardeners and chefs to discover new color, creativity, and plants with each visit. Four season food productions is on display in the Potager Menu Garden.

There are several unique displays within the Heartland Harvest Garden. As you explore the fruits and vegetables, grains and nuts and so much more you may often find yourself saying, “Oh that’s the plant where that (food) comes from!” You will see a wide range of edible varieties from heirloom and modern to even some plants on trial for the future. The produce, herbs, and other edibles from this garden are used for our special events, eaten by staff and volunteers, or donated to the community.

A visit to the Missouri Barn’s silo observation deck is a must, where you can overlook the whole garden and see its quilt patterns.
