Campaign to Grow Houston’s Garden

Invest in the Garden for generations

We launched the Grow Houston’s Garden $35 million capital campaign to bring a botanic garden to Houston on a beautiful 132-acre site on Sims Bayou. This campaign funds Phase I, which lays down the critical infrastructure that will support future growth and provides the essential elements to begin welcoming visitors to a beautiful and informative garden in 2020.

Your support helps Grow Houston’s Garden

bringing a bold vision to life

Cultivating a world class botanic garden takes the work of many hands. Your support is essential for the Garden to inspire a love of plants and nature for generations to come.

We are on our way to creating an oasis near downtown, where people are inspired to appreciate the natural world. Soon, this location will be transformed into a series of wonderfully colorful gardens. From people with little knowledge of plants to experienced horticulturists, everyone will come together to admire the beauty of a blossom in the Confetti Garden and the grandeur of the tropics in The Jungle, deepening their appreciation for the natural world. Important research will help study and preserve our world’s precious biodiversity. Visionary plans that now exist on paper will soon come to life.

We hope you’ll join us in embracing the vision by supporting our efforts to Grow Houston’s Garden.
