How Can I Support Public Gardens?

It's National Public Gardens Day!

Here are 4 ways to support public gardens:
- Become a member of their suport organization. For us it is Friends of the Garden. This supports the garden financially, but also keeps you informed of the garden's accomplishments and how you can be involved (events, classes, volunteering, plant sales and more). A gift membership to a local public garden would be a great housewarming or wedding present.
- Introduce a friend to the garden. Have lunch in the cafe or stroll through the gardens. Invite someone to attend an event or take a class with you.
- Volunteer! This can benefit you as much as the garden - you'll learn so much and make new friends. Our volunteers work beside curators, help run special events, staff the gift shop and library, lead tours, help with educational programs, and more.
- Donate. Donations support the gardens and surrounding communities. Money can be given as gifts to the garden, presented in honor of friends and loved ones, or written into a will.

Come visit us! We'd love to see you here!
