As the year draws to a close, I want to wish you all the best of this festive season. I also invite you to join me in making a year-end gift to our Annual Fund to help keep Tower Hill Botanic Garden strong, beautiful, and flourishing.
Our seasons at Tower Hill were rich and full during 2016. Highlights included the adoption of a new long-range Master Plan, the building of the spectacular "Wild Rumpus" art installation with the help of volunteers who contributed over 1000 hours of their time, and the grand opening of The Court: A Garden Within Reach, our first garden to incorporate universal design principles. This garden heralds a new approach to design for future gardens and is a place of beauty where all people are welcomed to enjoy a rich connection to plants.
We continued to welcome thousands of school children to explore and learn about the importance of plants and pollinators. We also hosted hundreds of programs, concerts, workshops, and flower shows, including the enormously popular debut of the Dahlia Show. And this fall we celebrated our 30th anniversary of being at Tower Hill and the beginning of our 175th year as a Horticultural Society in grand style, Under the Harvest Moon. All of this occurred amidst the beautiful backdrop of our gardens and plant collections, which continue to form the core of our identity and which are a labor of love for our Horticulture staff and our devoted volunteers.
All of this is made possible by generous and essential contributions to our Annual Fund. I personally have increased my year-end giving this year and hope you can do the same by selecting the button below.
Thank you for all that you do for us. Have a happy and safe holiday season and New Year!
