Support The Gardens

The Gardens wouldn't be vibrantly alive and beautifully maintained without the participation of our numerous supporters, and we are extremely grateful!  

This support is the lifeline of the Kansas State University Gardens and is the backbone for its growth and success. The majority of the Gardens plant collections along with fountains, arbors, sculptures, benches, paved pathways, irrigation systems, walls, gates, etc, were donated by various organizations, companies and individuals. The plants serve as an educational resource for the the university and the regional community. Other elements contribute to the beautiful surroundings.  

It will take time and continued support to reach the goals of the Kansas State University Gardens. We are continuing to grow and we would like your help.
