My Garden Event

In May of 2013 the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens hosted its first, and remarkably successful, My Garden event. It showcased the beauty of the Gardens, provided inspiration about gardens and raised a net of over $120,000. The funds raised will improve the visitor experience and allow us to serve the community better. The craftsmen projects clearly underscored the creativity and talent resident in this county and linked it with the beauty of gardens and the enjoyment to be had by all.

The Board of the Garden has decided to make this spectacular event a biennial affair. The intervening year will provide an opportunity to complete the projects for which the funds were raised and demonstrate their value to the community. In addition, it will provide the craftsmen a longer time period for inspiration and execution of their remarkable designs.

The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens wishes to thank the Mendocino community, especially the sponsors and craftsmen, for their support. They have helped make the Gardens a more welcome place for all.   Please mark your calendars for the next My Garden event in May of 2015, the exact date to be announced later.
