Cultivate Color

Sponsor an annual planting in memory or appreciation of someone you care about! Renew your gift annually in order to keep  your recognition displayed in the Garden.

A custom plaque will be placed in our annual plantings from May to October. Watch your gift grow each time you visit the Garden.

Horticultural Enhancement Fund

The Horticultural Enhancement Fund will be used to support planned projects and supplies proposed by the Horticulture Department and approved by The Oregon Garden Foundation’s Board of Directors. With a continuous stream of fundraising sources and growth each year, the HEF will be able to invest thousands of dollars each year directly into the Garden.

The proceeds from each brick goes into our Horticultural Enhancement Fund.
