Help Us Grow

Help us Grow!Your donation to the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden impacts the lives of thousands of community members and visitors. Your community SLO Botanical Garden inspires water conservation and environmental stewardship. Every donation you make to your Garden grows a vision of a sustainable, bio-diverse and BEAUTIFUL community.

We need general funding to keep the Garden running AND funding for a Children’s Sage Meadow. On December 5th our sponsors at Sage Ecological Landscapes are helping plant our 1-acre Children’s Sage Meadow, where people of all ages can play, discover and explore native California plants.

When you make a donation to the general funds AND a donation of $50 or more to the Children’s Sage Meadow you or a loved one will be honored on our donors sign located in the Children’s Sage Meadow. A donation to the Children’s Sage Meadow will be spent ONLY on plants and materials needed to complete this project. This is a gift that will last for years to come!
