  • Thanks to generous funders the Garden is closing in on the $8 million goal to complete the project. We invite your participation.

  • As of February 25, 2022, foundations for new structures are complete and Greenhouse and Headhouse construction is well underway

  • On October 13, 2021 more than 200 supporters joined us to break ground on this new facility​

  • Scheduled to open in Fall 2022, the new complex will be approximately 34,000 square feet. It will enable us to fulfill our vital role as a world-class Botanical Garden, in service to the public while also supporting global conservation efforts.

  • Garden staff partnered with award-winning design firm Siegel & Strain to develop this new nursery replacement and consolidation project. 

  • The new facility will allow us to:

    • Welcome plants from other institutions and care for rare, endangered, and unique species

    • Implement best practices for plant propagation and overall nursery operations

    • Improve safety and workflow to support our dedicated staff, horticultural team, and volunteers

    • Modernize our retail operation to offer noteworthy plants not commercially available

    • Enhance maintenance, security, and efficiency with centralized storage for equipment, tools, materials, and vehicles used throughout the Garden
