Have you tried asking the staff helping out there? I haven't been there but >95% of the mulberry plants grown locally are Morus alba.

Since it's a herb garden, it's Morus alba if berries are 2-4cm long as this is the species used in TCM (berries are consumed and leaves used to make tea). If the berries are finger length, then it's Morus macroura.
