Ways to Give

From its inception 87 years ago, the Berkshire Botanical Garden has relied on the generosity of its members and friends to provide critical support for our renowned display gardens, horticulture programs and workshops, adult and children’s education programs, and the expansion of the Garden as a community resource. By giving to the garden, you help us sustain our programs and carry on our mission of providing information and inspiration on gardening and the environment.

Please include us in your giving plans! 
Make a tax-deductible donation today — we simply can't grow and thrive without you! For more information on supporting BBG through membership or donations, please call us at 413 298-4532.

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.
