SUPPORT THE FUTURE OF MBG

McIntire Botanical Garden’s unique ‘garden-as-nest’ design has been recognized nationally with the American Society of Landscape Architects’ 2020 Honor Award. It’s being heralded as “a place of resiliency, discovery, inclusion and healing.”
We have kicked off our Fall Appeal to raise funds to help establish this admission-free garden for everyone to enjoy.

A generous donor will match all contributions up to the first $25,000 made by December 31!

GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY

We welcome your involvement and assistance in and out of the garden to help move this wonderful project forward.

McIntire Botanical Garden will be Central Virginia’s premiere botanical garden and a showcase for the natural landscape of the Piedmont region.

WHY THE GARDEN MATTERS

The McIntire Botanical Garden will offer important educational opportunities to visitors of all ages through interpretive labeling, seasonal classes, symposia, and workshops held in the Garden. Regional residents and students will be encouraged to conduct research on-site.

The McIntire Botanical Garden will increase tourism to the region, create a beautiful venue for public events, and offer opportunities for physical activity. A growing body of research attests to the mental and physiological benefits of engaging with nature. The Garden will be an inspiring and beautiful green space where visitors can experience the restorative properties of nature amid the flora and natural environment of the Piedmont region.

Moreover, the Garden will have a significant positive impact on local ecosystems, by supporting pollinators, stabilizing soil, preserving water resources, and fostering the ecological character of the Virginia Piedmont.
