Lauritzen Gardens Guild

Founded in 1998 with the support of the Loveland Garden Club, the Lauritzen Gardens Guild membership is comprised of enthusiastic civic leaders from Omaha and its surrounding suburbs. The Lauritzen Gardens Guild is a volunteer organization dedicated to the support and growth of Lauritzen Gardens.

The guild is committed to assisting Lauritzen Gardens by broadening its awareness in the community, raising funds for its support and providing services that advance the garden's mission. Money raised through guild events supports educating children to celebrate the bond between people and plants- by engaging them through programs and displays that help to instill a deeper understanding of the need to conserve the earth's biological heritage and by promoting an ethic of environmental stewardship.

You are invited to join the Guild today.
