Your donation helps to ‘Grow the Garden!’
The 26-acre site is secured, the Master Site Plan finalized, the Visitor Center, Pavilion, Silo Pool, Native Plant Garden, Lucille’s Garden, Walled Garden and Sugar Maple Allee all completed. Our next goals are to build the Secret Garden, install a handicap-accessible ramp, and plant the Maple Allee garden beds with thousands of bulbs and perennials. Your gift will be a lasting legacy to the future.
