Membership Levels and Benefits

While it receives some support from Georgia Southern University, the Garden must raise annual operating funds and all funds for new plantings, gardens, exhibits, programs and buildings. Your membership, while offering you benefits such as free or reduced admission at over 300 gardens nationwide, puts new plants in the ground, educates learners of all ages, and grows a Garden we can be proud to pass on to future generations.

To pay by check use the Printable Membership Form.   For online payments, click here.   This will take you to the University Foundation website for you to enter your credit card information.  In the comment box add GARDEN MEMBERSHIP.
