Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden receives many requests for free or discounted tickets throughout the year and as a result has established the following two programs:

  • FUNDRAISER REQUESTS (to benefit non-profit fundraisers)

  • SHARING THE GARDEN (for need-based group visits)



Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden can donate two Garden tickets (for regular use; not valid for GardenFest of Lights) to a non-profit organization or school once per calendar year.
