Columbus Botanical Garden #TogetherWeCanWeather
You can help shape the city of Columbus and its offerings by supporting the Columbus Botanical Garden. Your donations directly impact programs at the garden that serve the community. You can choose where your dollars go in the sections below.
Even $5 can make a big difference. We are fighting to keep your Garden alive and preserve this cultural and community space.
Your contribution will allow these community programs to continue:
–NOURISH COLUMBUS PROGRAM: Nourish those in need through our partnership program with Bare Roots Bibb City. You donate to our Nourish Program and we send bags of organic, nutrient rich foods to Olivia Amos at Bare Roots for her to prepare and give to various programs to distribute the meals.
-Children’s interactive programs & field trips to all Muscogee County Schools, Little Sprouts, and Kid’s Yoga in the Garden.
-Classes in urban farming, cooking from your garden, bee keeping, health & wellness, plus more native gardening and horticultural classes.
-Fun community events like Nankipooh live outdoor music series, art exhibits, SAMPOSIUM Naturalist Sypmosium, Christmas in the Garden light installation and Christmas programming, and so much more.
-MOST IMPORTANTLY, Garden growth! We are constantly maintaining and developing new garden as this natural space offers a sanctuary for you and your loved ones to commune with nature and enjoy a sacred outdoor space that soothes and transforms your stress to joy.
Your generosity ensures that we will continue to be an oasis for the people of our community to enjoy and celebrate nature and one another. As a gesture of gratitude for your donation, you will be invited to the Garden for a special celebration once we reopen.
Together there is little we can’t weather.

DID YOU KNOW:
“Taking at least 20 minutes out of your day to stroll or sit in a place that makes you feel in contact with nature will significantly lower your stress hormone levels. That’s the finding of a study that has established for the first time the most effective dose of an urban nature experience. Healthcare practitioners can use this discovery to prescribe ‘nature-pills’ in the knowledge that they have a real measurable effect.” – Science Daily www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/04/190404074915.htm
