Rutgers Gardens relies heavily on private support to cultivate inquisitive minds and great plants and to inspire gardening through educational exploration and enjoyment. Funding comes from philanthropic gifts and bequests, the membership program, special fundraising events such as our annual Gardens Party, educational workshops, facilities rental revenues, and the annual plant sale.
As part of Rutgers University, the Rutgers Gardens provides experiential and service learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. It serves as a living laboratory for faculty and staff to better serve the landscape, nursery, and public horticulture industry.
Your support will help us to safeguard the Garden’s rich history by preserving and expanding the existing areas of the Gardens, maintaining our natural areas, as well as developing educational programs for children and adults.
Thank you for cultivating inquisitive minds, great plants, and inspiring gardening through educational exploration and enjoyment by supporting Rutgers Gardens.
