Join the Fall 2020 Giving Challenge

As a result of the coronavirus, our garden’s usual operating revenues – memberships, venue rentals, class fees, and gift shop sales – have been greatly reduced. To help offset these losses, we are reaching out to you and others, asking that you consider a generous donation to The Botanic Garden this year.

A group of committed friends of The Garden have stepped forward to establish a Giving Challenge Fund. The fund will match, dollar-for-dollar, the gifts of members, friends, and supporters of the garden.

Now is the perfect time to become a member of the garden or to make a contribution.

Give now and double your impact.

Thank you for helping the garden grow!

This is your community. This is your garden.

Located in the heart of Traverse City on the beautiful grounds of Historic Barns Park.

The Botanic Garden is a year-round sanctuary of environmental preservation, recreation and education. Its 25 acres nurtures the soul, enlivens our history and promotes Michigan’s natural beauty. With an emphasis on plant species native to northwest Michigan, it creates and enhances habitats for various forms of wildlife.

As a place of refreshment and solace, The Botanic Garden’s unique and original design strives to inform and inspire. After over a decade of careful planning and preparation, the garden is coming alive.

We'd love to hear from you!
