Interested in Supporting School Gardens?

Donations and grants help the school gardening program at the Chicago Botanic Garden to serve thousands of schoolchildren each year.

Donations can help to purchase tools, materials and plants so that schools can benefit from active discovery in their gardens.

Anyone wishing to donate may contribute online or by calling (847) 835-6835.

School garden programs need volunteers to help with activities such as planting days and garden maintenance.This is a great way to get training and support for working in outdoor environments with children. Get your hands dirty and gain some experience assisting us with youth programs! Find out more about volunteering for the Chicago Botanic Garden.
