Give to the Garden
Discover how your gift supports a living museum of plants, critical conservation work and innovative educational programming at the Garden.
How Your Gift Supports the Garden
Your gift provides essential support for the care and cultivation of the Garden’s stunning horticultural displays.
Contributions enable the horticulture team to obtain spectacular water lilies for the Aquatic Plant Pond, gorgeous blooms for the Rose Garden, summer bulbs for the perennial border, and native azaleas for the woodland gardens. Giving to the Garden also supports the planting of the children’s vegetable garden and the Edible Garden for seasonal harvests. Your gift supports areas of the Garden that need it most!
How Your Gift Supports Conservation
Behind the scenes at the Garden, the conservation team is deeply committed to preserving rare and endangered plants and amphibians.
Your gift provides funding for critical conservation work involving projects to safe-guard and recover plant species ranging from the Monkey Face Orchid, Bucket Orchid and Kentucky Ladyslipper to the Cigar Orchid and the herbaceous perennial, Tennessee Yellow Eyed Grass. Contributions also support the restoration of unique, species-rich bog habitats native to Georgia and the Southeast.
More than one-third of the world’s amphibian species is threatened or endangered. Your gift enables the amphibian team to breed threatened frogs in captivity, conduct field research on emerging infectious amphibian diseases in Georgia and stabilize declining populations of Georgia's native Gopher Frog.
How Your Gift Supports Education
Your gift enables the Garden’s education team to create dynamic programming to engage children and adults including hands-on activities and funding for Garden Chef demonstrations of all ages.
Contributions provide integral funding for children’s programs, such as insightful tours for school groups, hands-on summer camps, interactive “drop-in” family classes, the beloved storybook time and live performances in the Children’s Amphitheater. Giving to the Garden also ensures a variety of adult programs, ranging from drawing and photography classes to hands-on gardening workshops with horticultural experts to discover best practices and answers to botanical questions.
