Give the Gift of a Garden

Imagine:

  • giving a gift that lasts forever...
  • a gift which uplifts the spirit and frees the mind...
  • your gift full of colour, movement, fragrance and beauty...
  • sharing your gift with over half a million people every year...

The National Arboretum Canberra is offering an exclusive opportunity to give this gift, to be part of our vision to grow to '100 Gardens'.

The National Arboretum Canberra has set aside twenty-four individual garden beds and is offering the opportunity to contribute to those gardens - to passionate people who see the beauty in giving, who understand the satisfaction of nurturing living things, and who appreciate the importance of preserving and protecting our natural world for future generations to enjoy.
 24 Gardens
 
Each garden bed will be planted with one of the specially-chosen species our horticulturalists have selected, to achieve a stunning visual display of colour and texture lining the ‘Central Valley’ pathway. The pathway zig-zags nine hundred metres, leading from the Arboretum’s sweeping entrance to the iconic Village Centre.

The opposing side of the garden beds along the Central Valley pathway will develop into a shady avenue of ceremonial trees, planted by visiting dignitaries and  world leaders. Plans to incorporate a water feature cascading down the spine of the Central Valley path and winding its way via waterfalls and stepping stones, will transform the Central Valley into an impressive walkway though a tranquil forest and stunning garden beds.
