From its inception 87 years ago, the Garden has relied on the generosity of its members and friends to provide critical support for the maintenance and growth of our gardens, and today we need that support more than ever. In a world of social distancing, our mission goes far beyond creating an oasis of serenity for the enjoyment of the public. Every day, we continue to create virtual content that will educate children and adults to be good stewards of our landscapes and to provide individual, local and global perspectives on the importance of gardens in our lives.
Your donation helps sustain our programs and carry on a mission of providing information and inspiration on gardening and the environment.

The Dorthe Hviid Tree Fund
Initiated in July, 2021, the Dorthe Hviid Tree Fund was created in honor of our retired Director of Horticulture, who did so much to nurture and protect BBG's trees over her many years at the Garden. This fund will ensure that BBG can continue to care for, and augment, its impressive tree collection for generations to come. We are delighted to announce that we have already received two generous donations totaling $7,000 for this legacy fund! Please consider making a tax deductible donation in any amount to support BBG's tree collection, here.
Support us while growing vegetables!
Each season, we create a teaching space for “all things vegetable” in beautifully maintained and labeled raised bed “quadrants.” Our edible outdoor classroom informs visitors of all ages how vegetables grow, and which varieties are amenable to the Berkshires.
Please consider a sponsorship of $100 that will allow you to claim "your" veggie box, with your name (or that of a loved one) hand-painted on our ornamental plant signs for all to see! Be creative and let those alliterations fly! Click here to reserve.
