The Gardens at Heather Farm embraces a rolling hillside in Walnut Creek’s Ygnacio Valley. Located on six acres adjacent to Heather Farm Community Park in the City of Walnut Creek, the site provides expansive views of the majestic Mount Diablo and a series of meandering trails full of plants and local wildlife. A Certified Wildlife Sanctuary and Certified Green Company, The Gardens' goal is to enrich the community by offering educational programs and a variety of opportunities for social and cultural activities, through the beauty and environmental stewardship of our garden.

The past of Heather Farm's Gardens spans many decades, and marks the legacy over the years of countless community supporters. In 1968, the founding committee founded its new community in 1971, gained tax-exempt status as a registered 501 non-profit in 1972, and was busy raising funds to improve the garden areas and create the structure, dedicated in 1983 as the Heather Farm Garden Center Building and renamed the Howard Center in 1999.

Currently, this building contains the organization's office rooms, a laboratory and a large banquet hall, used for meetings and parties. Today's Gardens represents the united efforts of those who spend their time, skills and financial capital, and who still spend. As a small , independent charity, The Gardens operates with a team of full and part-time staff and relies heavily on committed volunteer support and participation.
