Gardens at Fifield
Supports the ongoing maintenance and improvement of the gardens for teaching and research, including hardscapes, structures, plant material, and other infrastructure needs. The Gardens at Fifield fund has been established to enable garden development that supports formal and informal education through courses, extension programs, and research demonstration. The gardens showcase the value of plants and horticulture to the public and related industries, along with students and extension clientele.
The Gardens at Fifield were established to be more than an ornamental landscape – they are designed and managed to educate and demonstrate the value of plants in our daily lives. Whether it’s passive enjoyment during a stroll through the garden before a meeting or a class lab working on plant identification or an experimental plant trial, the gardens are a public horticulture resource that connects people and plants.
Your gift to the Gardens will impact: education of students and the general public, class demonstrations and test plots, plant identification and trial resources, plant accessions and database management, as well as construction of amenities and hardscapes to increase accessibility and utility.
