THE NEW VISION FOR A WELCOME CENTER AND RE-IMAGINED GIFT SHOP
Mounts Botanical Garden is a horticultural dream come true!
NOW IMAGINE… A Welcome Center and Gift Shop that delights, informs and provides support to educational initiatives!
Our vision includes a beautiful space where you can browse for that unique gift or plant, find books that will awaken your inner gardener and spark your imagination, and where high definition screens with beautiful imagery will inform you on upcoming events and classes.
NOW REALIZE THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!
We are proud to announce the Mounts Botanical Welcome Center & Gift Shop. Construction is set to begin in May of 2020.
As a not-for-profit organization, Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden relies on retail revenue to support outreach and free, educational programming to our community. Just last year, more than 5,000 local students engaged in a variety of nature programs and field experiences to learn about the joys of gardening, environmental stewardship, and conservation.
The Welcome Center & Gift Shop, along with our display gardens, ultimately aids in our mission to inspire and educate through nature. Guests appreciate the world of horticulture through the unique items we sell in our gift shop and know their purchase is helping to fulfill the Garden’s mission.
An expanded and renovated Welcome Center & Gift Shop will accomplish several key objectives for the Garden’s continued growth and development:
- Accuracy in recording visitor attendance, which is crucial to grant applications and Garden maintenance
- A richer visitor experience that includes education on the history of the Garden and its current exhibits and projects
- Increased revenue to support community outreach
Community support for the Garden is accomplished in many ways. Members, donors and volunteers are responsible for the exceptional beauty of the Garden, and we are grateful.
We need your continued support to keep our Garden thriving.
