Your Support Helps the Garden Grow

The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park is an all-volunteer organization, and we rely on your generous donations, event revenue, membership fees, and gift shop sales for the funds needed to keep the garden growing. Public gardens have a powerful and positive impact on the health, environment and economy of a region. They make it a better place to live. Our mission is to design, build, and manage a year-round botanic garden in Northwest Michigan for the purposes of botanical and environmental preservation, education and research, and the enjoyment and renewal of citizens and visitors. We couldn't do this without your support. Thank you for helping the garden grow!
