Tree sponsorship costs a minimum of $500 per year.

Fund the installation of a memorial bench seat

Share the memory of someone you have loved with visitors to the Gardens by purchasing a memorial seat in their name.

The seat will have a brass plaque which can be engraved with a personal message from you. Your donation will add to the comfort and enjoyment of the Gardens by all visitors.

Memorial seats cost in the vicinity of $4,000.

Consider a bequest

A gift to the Gardens, whether during your lifetime or in your will, is a valuable contribution to the future, a gift that will bring lasting benefits of understanding, education and conservation for future generations.

Substantial bequests may be devoted to particular projects or purposes, subject to discussion with the Director and the Board of Trustees.
