Museum Garden

The garden outside of the Haskell Cultural Center and Museum was planted shortly after the museum first opened in 2002. The garden project was launched with help from a grant from the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation as a way to promote health, particularly among native tribes.


The students, who originally planted and tended it, also wanted the plot to serve as a reminder of Haskell’s early years, when children were taken from their homes to “educate and civilize” them into the European way of life.

Unfortunately, after the initial grant funding expired, the garden became overgrown and neglected, but is being painstakingly reimagined and restored by the Haskell Greenhouse.

For more information on the gardens and how you can be part of this project, please reach out to the Haskell Greenhouse via their Facebook page here.
