Why Give to the Garden . . .
Your support allows the Garden to continue to give back to the Triad by presenting an aesthetically pleasing, fine modern public garden. We provide public education programs for children and adults; introduce plants to the greater community of nursery professionals, horticulturists, and gardening public.
Financial support allows the Garden to provide our community with up-to-date unique gardens with over 3,000 plant species on 3.5 of 7 acres. When complete we will showcase 34 exceptional and specific styled Gardens.
Contributions allow the Garden to continue our Educational Programs:
Elementary Education Program – each student, K-5, who tours the Garden discovers the importance of the life cycle of a seed. Each will take home their own seed kit, watching the seed grow into a healthy vegetable that can provide for healthier eating lifestyles.
Hunger Relief – we always need vegetable seeds and herb plants for the Kitchen garden. Upon harvest, we donate to local hunger relief programs with over 3,000 pounds donated since 2015.
Chip Calloway Lecture Series – new and/or avid gardeners can participate in the many lectures and “How-to” sessions through our ‘Lunch and Learn’, and ‘Summer Thursday’ events.
Support allows the Garden to GROW!! We are excited to announce our newest Garden Project. A new home for our “Dancing Cranes”. If you haven’t visited in a while, we invite you to visit and share our excitement for our current Garden project.
Our plan is to install a Rill and Reflecting Pool, which will house the beautiful bronze sculpture, “Dancing Cranes” by Lloyd LeBlanc. Donated to the Garden from Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., the sculpture is currently living in our Welcome Center. Help us build them a new home.
As we begin our fundraising, we have received a lead gift of $50,000 from a longtime enthusiastic donor toward our $250,000 goal. We are off and running and plan to present their new home in April 2020.
Because the Garden is a place of unique beauty seeking to inspire, enlighten, and connect people of all ages to the world of plants, gardening, and horticulture. We remain truly appreciative of our community and donor support as we journey into the future. Support allows us to achieve several specific purposes: education, passive recreation, and the cultivation, display, preservation and conservation of garden plants. It is to be a living classroom, civic gathering space, and a place of beauty.
Yes! I would love to support your good work today.
