Help the Garden Grow!
There are so many ways to get involved and help support the South Carolina Botanical Garden. We depend on the generosity of time, talent and funds offered by our volunteers and our members. To keep the Garden's 295 acres open year-round with no admission fee, we need the support of the community, fellow gardeners, businesses, teachers, donors and anyone who wants to help people connect with nature and culture.
Thank you for your interest in helping our Garden grow!
