St. George's Botanical Garden

Created among the ruins of an 18th century sugar plantation the Botanical Gardens are a wonderful place to visit. The gardens are planted on 16 acres containing over 1000 species of local and exotic tress and shrubs. An interesting blend of history and flora and fauna awaits you at St. George’s Gardens. A rich history surrounds the location of the gardens as they are built upon a pre-Columbus Indian settlement and the ruins of a sugar plantation. A cactus garden, rain forest trail and beautiful mahogany trees surround acres of tropical garden. A working nursery and a gift shop are available on site.

Today Miss Amy & Miss Mary toured the Garden with 60 enthusiastic students from Eulalie Rivera Elementary School.

Along the way students spied a leftover (unwelcome) guest from Mango Melee last weekend - Batocera rufomaculata DeGeer also know as the Mango Stem Borer beetle. These pests attack the stems of fruit trees like Mangoes.

Proceeds from events like Mango Melee help keep the Garden open to local St Croix school children excited to explore nature and its wonders.
