The Mandarin Museum & Historical Society website provides the following information about the garden: "Please visit the Harriet Beecher Stowe Garden on your next visit to the Museum. The three raised beds feature crops grown in Mandarin in the 19th Century. Some of the crops were mentioned in Harriet Beecher Stowe's Palmetto Leaves in the chapter entitled "Our Experience in Crops." The kitchen garden is maintained with the help of the Duval County Extension Service. Excess food will be donated to
the Mandarin Food Bank."

The Museum was awarded a $2,000 grant from the Florida Humanities Council in 2005 to develop and place museum-quality signage in the demonstration garden; however, the signs have not yet been placed.
