The Buzz

As the year comes to a close...

2013 was the 60th anniversary of the Memphis Botanic Garden and will go down as one of our most memorable.

Memorable because, to name a few, we opened the Asian Garden that has already been recognized as a premiere destination, recorded our 7th consecutive attendance year at Live at The Garden, added three new digital signs that improved our communication with the public and enhanced our image of being a major Memphis attraction, continued to impact children’s education by reaching over 36,000 children through

programs and festivals, added lights to showcase the surroundings of the Four Seasons Garden, began construction on a permanent stage, living wall, box office, and a new building that will help sustain the financial health of the garden for years to come, maintained our debt free and financially sound status, set anattendance record for Snowy Nights, and improved the overall quality of our horticultural offerings in almost every aspect of our 96 acres.

Momentum in 2014 will continue as we renovate the Sculpture Garden and the Sensory Garden to make both of these already appealing areas even more so, completing construction, and opening the new stage and performing arts venue, creating more educational opportunities for children and adults, and continuing to upgrade our horticultural offerings. The Garden will have another great year in 2014.

Thanks to all our volunteers and supporters in their partnership with us and we look forward to growing these relationships in 2014.
