About Us

The West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center is home to the UT Gardens-Jackson. In addition to the Jackson location, the UT Gardens can be found at the UT Institue of Agriculture campus in Knoxville and the Plateau AgResearch and Education Center in Crossville. The UT Gardens mission is to cultivate an appreciation of plants through horticultural displays, educational programs and research. In 2013, Governor Bill Haslam signed a bill designating the UT Gardens as the official botanical garden for Tennessee.

The Gardens are located around the office building area.  Visitors are welcome during daylight hours all year long.  Our website is ever evolving, so check back in soon for new pictures and updates.

The West TN Research & Education Center staff thanks our 2015 donors!
