Your Support – How You Can Help!

We rely on contributions of all types from our local community and visitors. Here are just some of the ways that you can help us maintain our 100-acre site, and keep it as an Oasis of Gardens, Woodlands, and Nature Trails.

Please see Membership of MBG about the benefits of Membership of the Gardens.

Basic benefits include unlimited free visits to the Gardens, discounts on classes, talks and on-line sales, and reduced admission at participating American Horticultural Society Gardens around the USA.

As a non-profit organization, the Gardens relies on membership contributions and fund-raising events for year round maintenance and operation.

We are forging ahead with our Master Plan for the Gardens. We have recently completed fund-raising for an expansion to our Rhododendron Garden, and will be installing the Aromi Hybrid Native Azaleas over the coming months. Aromi Hybrid Azalea Expansion Project

Our next major project is funding for the proposed Butterfly Garden – we have received a matching grant challenge of $7500. We are currently seeking donations to match it! Proposed Butterfly Garden

All contributions are welcome – by online payment or by mail. You may make a general donation to the Gardens, or specify a favorite area where you’d like it to be used. Please specify any designation whether contributing online or by mail.

Donations of money and in-kind goods or services to MBG are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law – consult your tax preparer or accounting professional. You will receive a recognition letter documenting your donation.

To be named a recipient of memorials for loved ones is an honor for us.
