Sawtooth Botanical Garden

11 Gimlet Road
Ketchum, ID 83340


The Sawtooth Botanical Garden is public non-profit 501 (c)3. It was founded in 1994 by a small local group of passionate gardeners and environmentalists. With the generous support of the Global Environmental Project Institute, this group was able to purchase a five-acre site, build a community building with a solar greenhouse, and begin their dream of establishing a Public Garden.

The goal of the Garden is to establish a place to build community through the understanding and exploration of both native and cultivated plants. Understanding the unique ecology of this region and exploring the wonders of gardening provided a multitude of opportunities to "celebrate plants and inspire people".

Through its programs, the Sawtooth Botanical Garden provides information on gardening and ecological principles relevant to the areas climatic conditions and plant and human communities.

The Sawtooth Botanical Garden offers an affordable alternative to rent for private parties for adults and children, meetings, conferences and special events. We have a beautiful greenhouse for winter parties and a full kitchen facility. In the summertime you can rent our lovely garden and the indoor space. Please contact us if you would like to visit the facility and learn more.
