Our Mission and History


Located in southeast Alabama, at 5130 Headland Avenue, just off U.S. Highway 431 between Dothan and Headland.

DABG’s mission is to provide an enhancement to the quality of life for Wiregrass citizens, to serve as an educational resource for children and adults in garden lore and environmental issues, and to be a vibrant area attraction that promotes tourism and economic development in southeast Alabama.
