The Georgeson Botanical Garden Friends is a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit, which exists in order to support and advance the Georgeson Botanical Garden. In recent years, the Friends have taken an increasingly active role in programming and future planning.

The Friends are truly the humanitarian spirit of the Garden. Managed by the volunteer Board of Directors, it offers an ever-expanding menu of services:

  • Education and outreach, so that everyone can learn in the Garden.
  • Event management for outreach, education, and fundraising.
  • Funding for Garden staff, maintenance, and construction.
  • Volunteer coordination to help ensure the Garden is beautiful and accessible.
  • Community input for the Garden’s future development and current priorities.
