What’s a Garden without a place to sit?
We plan to place benches one-by-one all over the Garden. The first one has been installed in the Rainforest Garden and it’s a great place to sit. Other locations have been identified, from the entrance to the Garden Pavilion, overlooking the ponds and near the Perimeter Path.
When you sponsor a bench, you support the Garden as a whole and improve the experience of visitors and volunteers who want to pause – for a snack, a rest, a conversation, sketching, meditation, any pause that helps them enjoy Nature more fully. Your sponsorship will be appreciated by so many people for so many reasons.
Bench sponsorship costs $2500, for which you will receive an official donation receipt for tax purposes, a map showing the location of the bench and, if desired, a plaque with words of inspiration inscribed.
A bench sponsorship is typically for 10 years, after which the sponsor will be given first chance to re-sponsor before it is offered to others.
