Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Plans are underway to bring an events center and botanical garden and conservatory to the metro area.

Meeting with local chefs and the Prairie Roots Food Co-op today, the Northern Plains Botanic Garden Society outlines a three phase plan to bring a Japanese Garden and conservatory to the region.

The event and education center would host conventions and celebrations and eventually have a showcase conservatory.

Jackie Williams/Northern Plains Botanic Garden Society: “and the idea is we will be self-funding, have our own staff and keep our gardens beautiful and be a driver of tourism to the area all as a nonprofit.”
