About Us

Photo: Flowers at Spring Flower Fair.Rutgers Gardens is a self-sustaining operation and relies on your support for maintaining the Gardens, purchasing equipment and materials, supporting salaries, and providing public programs. Funds are raised through facility rental fees, special events, membership dues and donations from our generous supporters.  We are one of the few botanical gardens in the country that does not charge a visitor’s fee and is open 365 days a year.




Our Mission
