It takes a little "green" to keep us growing.
Please consider contributing to the stewardship and preservation of this one-of-a-kind eco-friendly urban space. We receive some funding, but we must also reach into our own pockets to keep the Garden viable. Contributions help with expenses such as equipment, soil improvement, and grounds upkeep.

Make your contribution

Thank you - your giving  keeps us growing

Thursdays in the Garden
Master Gardeners of Cuyahoga County work throughout the growing season on Thursday mornings at 10:00 in the demonstration gardens (Herb, Perennial and Vegetable) weather permitting. The public is free to visit, observe the demonstrations gardens and ask the Master Gardeners questions.

Let's celebrate our 40th anniversary in a new pavilion! Help us build a gathering place pavilion at the Garden and enjoy safe, outdoor, socially distanced entertainment and education (or just relax in the shade). We have some seed funding (pun intended) but now we're using a crowd-funding effort to see it through. And! Dollars you donate will be matched! Doubled! See
