Galaxy Garden

The Galaxy Garden is a 100-foot diameter outdoor scale model of the Milky Way, mapped in living plants and flowers and based on current astrophysical data.

Visit the Galaxy Garden online.  Why settle for a garden-variety veggie patch when you could have a constellation?  Like Lepus the Hare for your carrot patch? 

Constellations are the new labyrinths.



  1. Very cool!

  2. Isn’t it? I think I might do Pots of Pleiades…….hmm Pot from Pleiades?
