Rutgers Gardens is an independent, non-profit organization supported by membership, donations, endowments and a group of dedicated volunteers.  We are one of the few botanical gardens that do not have a visitor fee and are open 365 days a year.  You are welcome to come as often as you like to enjoy our "living museum" with its large array of gardens and plant collections.

Your support will help provide the necessary funding for the Gardens program of education in horticulture and garden- related topics for the homeowner, make certain that these programs continue to exist and benefit the community in the future. In return, we offer many wonderful membership benefits.
