Lauritzen Gardens strives to make our community a more beautiful place to live and work and continues to provide new and exciting opportunities for lifelong learning about the importance of plants in our lives. The garden celebrates the bond between people and plants by instilling a deeper understanding of the need to conserve earth's biological heritage and by promoting an ethic of environmental stewardship through its programs and displays.
Lauritzen Gardens looks to expand its educational programming, environmental awareness, facilities maintenance and development as well as horticultural health and diversity. It is a valuable resource for the community, which must be maintained and enhanced for present and future visitors.
There are many ways to support Lauritzen Gardens - through giving to the annual fund, sponsorship of an event or fixture of the garden, a charitable legacy gift or through a tribute or memorial in recognition of a friend or family member. To find out more, select from the list on the left.
HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF ONE MILLION DAFFODILS..
Lauritzen Gardens has a multi-year goal to add one million daffodils to the garden- to diversify the garden's collection of daffodils (Narcissus sp.), create a blanket of cheery yellow and white blooms, and celebrate the arrival of spring each year.
Our goal for 2018 is to raise the seed money to establish and naturalize 50,000 bulbs to plant along the main road between the rose garden and the Sunpu Castle Gate. Each $5 contribution will support the planting and care of a daffodil that will be planted this fall and part of a stunning spring display in the spring of 2019. Your tax-deductible gift ensures that Lauritzen Gardens advances its mission to provide memorable educational and aesthetic experiences for all. Thank you!
