Giving Gardens

For over 40 years, CMSE has been fostering growth by providing meaningful work for people with disabilities. This continuous dedication to growth has inspired us to create Giving Gardens, a retail nursery that features the most colorful perennials, annuals, herbs, vegetables, and hanging baskets.

Our employees will move from our warehouse to our brand new greenhouse where they are thrilled to get their hands a little dirty and assist our expert horticulturist in providing you with the most memorable shopping experience. For them, working outside with our variety of plants has proven to be very therapeutic and they can’t wait to come into work everyday. The only thing more exciting for our employees than bringing up one of these plants, is watching you take one home.

We aspire to create an environment than not only brings joy to our employees, but one that provides you with a delightful shopping experience where you’ll be sure to get both proper gardening advice and a smile every time you walk in.

Here at CMSE, it’s always been about growing, and that’s why we feel that our new nursery is the perfect venture for us. So this fall when you need Chrysanthemum, stop by Giving Gardens and let’s grow together.
