Gnome Schooling
Homegrown Mini-Golf is a rich agricultural environment with over 50 varieties of vegetables, fruit, herbs, grains and nuts that grow, develop and change with the seasons. All are identified with signage that vividly explains science, history and lore. When ripe, the plantings can even be tasted. The gardens are designed to nurture an appreciation for our food and excite interest in its fascinating origins.
