Maui Botanical Gardens

Maui Nui Botanical Gardens (MNBG) is dedicated to the protection of Maui Nui’s rich native plants and cultural heritage. By collecting, cultivating, and distributing native and Polynesian-introduced plants MNBG provides people with a gathering place to see and understand the important relationship these plants have to our economic, social, and cultural livelihoods. In addition, through partnerships, we expand the reach of our activities to many of Maui Nui’s managed native habitats as well as schools, hula halau, and other civic and not-for-profit groups. As MNBG reaches out to groups outside of the Gardens, we also draw people in through interpretation of our living collection (native and Polynesian-introduced plantings in the Gardens) and the hiring of local cultural practitioners to demonstrate and teach their crafts to visitors of the Gardens. MNBG incorporates water conservation techniques like xeriscaping, and provides a place where people can learn about money saving water conservation methods. Maui Nui Botanical Gardens welcomes you to come and explore our collection, talk with the staff, and learn about our environmental and cultural heritage The Garden is located at 150 Kanaloa Avenue in Kahului, right across from the War Memorial Stadium.maui botanical gardens 1Maui Plantations, Farms and Gardens Maui is at the center of the farm-to-table process that is integral to Hawaii Regional Cuisine in the islands.

Alan purchased the 26-acre site in 1991 with a vision of restoring the area’s natural ecosystem with Hawai’i’s native and indigenous species. Along the way the opportunity arose to include exotic plants and trees from the South Pacific region and tropical rain forests throughout the world. There are currently over 700 botanically labeled plants, including the most extensive collection of Ti plants in Hawaii. Ti has a long history of usage by the Polynesians in ceremonies and rituals, and is still considered one of Hawai’i’s most culturally useful plants.maui botanical gardens 9The Maui Garden of Eden deserves its name.
