All Patrons are listed in the Plant Sale Catalog if received prior to January 31st.
Gift in Memory or Honor
Give a gift to honor someone or to celebrate a major life event. To dedicate a bench is $5,000.00, which pays for the bench, site pad, installation, and memorial plaque. A portion of the cost is placed into an endowment for maintenance and repairs.
