GIFT OF GROWTH
Choose Where to Give
Donate to the Columbus Botanical Garden
The future is bright as we look in the coming years to projects such as the renovation of the Gin House into an educational facility and the development of a Children’s Garden. Upon your visit, be sure to take a look at our master plan, which is displayed in the Adam’s Farmhouse for a complete overview of what is to come.
We appreciate your continued support!
Nature Play and Learning
The Garden is planning year-round programs and hands-on workshops in gardening, botanical arts, wellness, garden-to-table cooking and much more, as we move forward. We want to be the source of information from anything from conservation, the environment, and how to grow plants in Columbus soil, to what are the best plants to plant to make a smoothie garden! Your gift helps us develop relevant and meaningful programs that help us become an indispensable part of the community.
Grow Your Garden
There are many ways to grow a garden- planting seeds and plants, nourishing the soil, and having the right tools! Help our staff & volunteers succeed at making our Garden gorgeous by contributing to our Gardens Basic Needs. We will need gloves, pruners, weeding knives, buckets, knee pad, etc. to weed, prune, pick, and plant and to keep the garden in tip-top shape. Your gift will buy and replace equipment that our staff and volunteers use every day.
It All Falls Down! House Restoration Project
Our historic grand Dame- the Adams Farmhouse has been around since 1898. We have done a great job developing the surrounding gardens but now it’s time to give our buildings the love they deserve. Your gift will help us with much needed repairs so that the house and buildings can continue to be used by our visitors and guests and to help make the gardens the premier place for memory making events.
Honey Anyone? Support our Beekeeping & Pollinator Programs
Your contribution helps to cover the costs of materials, maintenance, and honey production. Bees and other pollinators are incredibly important to our Eco-system. Their pollination helps germinate our vegetable garden for #Nourish Columbus – an outreach program to combat food insecurities in Columbus, GA. These bees also generate income for the Garden with honey sales as well as ensuring new growth throughout the garden.
Your donation directly supplies fresh organic vegetables from the Sally H. Adams Vegetable Terraces to Olivia Amos at the Food Mill who creates nourishing prepared meals to be distributed to those in food insecure areas by Mercy Med, Truth Spring Academy & Highland Community Church.
Let’s abolish food insecure areas of Columbus one nourishing meal at a time.
Honorariums & Memorials
A gift to the garden in honor or in memory of someone is a wonderful way to pay homage to a friend or loved one while contributing to a vital community asset. Your love for them and a charity they care about ican continue to grow here at the Garden.
A note of acknowledgment and gratitude will be sent to the recipient and/or their family.
Acknowledgment will be made in the Growing Garden Times newsletter.
