Support the Garden – Donate Today!

The Garden has several major projects that we need your support to complete:

  • Repair and strengthen the Nursery Greenhouse roof covering damaged in recent October windstorm. $28,000
  • Expand our Children and Adult Education Programs on everything from basic biology to gardening techniques and design to nature as artistic inspiration. Education is why we are here!

Children’s education has always been important to our mission.

Your donation in support of these projects will enable the Garden to fulfill its mission to preserve Ruth’s extraordinary Garden and inspire and educate the public about the beauty and benefits of drought tolerant plants!
