The Flourish Fund supports all the ways South Coast Botanic Garden can cultivate growth. From plants to education to the health of our visitors, this fund is our promise to grow to even greater heights for our community.
With many stressors in our world, the Garden has become a prized destination for renewal. As member Bobby shared with us recently, he and his wife traveled from East LA every week to visit the Garden. “The garden regrew my calm,” as they dealt with loss and anxiety during the pandemic. “The lavender beds and hummingbirds are the best therapists.”
YOU can be the hero in many more stories of restoration. With your support, we can build more nature therapy discount programs and respond to a growing need. The gifts we receive make it possible for the Learning and Engagement team to create interactive interpretation for our exhibits as well as educational materials. We can expand our plantings and design to not only display “nature on its best day” but to also provide unique opportunities for learning.
As your support has helped us provide nature experiences for 12, 500 free visits, we acknowledge that many more need help with admission prices. At the same time, the Garden’s supplies have not escaped the effects of inflation. But we don’t want this to stop us. Our changing world means even more people need assistance to engage with nature. Help us meet this growing need by raising $15,000 by June 30.
You can make a difference in someone’s life no matter the amount of your gift. We have also started a monthly giving program that provides reliable income to help us plan for all. As easy as a subscription, you can have a monthly amount charged on your credit card and brighten the Garden for special visitors each month. Together, we flourish!
