At Waterfront Botanical Gardens, our vision is to plant seeds and grow minds for more sustainable cities.

In light of the events taking place in our community, we find that true sustainability runs far deeper than the plants in our garden.

We stand with those calling for justice and change, and acknowledge the pain and anguish so many in our community rightly feel. As we re-open the Gardens to our community, we must sow the seeds of equality. Our community is like our garden: the more diversity it includes, the more beautiful it becomes. In the right balance, that symbiosis makes the entire garden, and community, healthier and stronger.

Waterfront Botanical Gardens stands strong as a place that welcomes all people. There is no place for discrimination or racism here. Help us plant those seeds and watch a new, stronger community grow. Together.







Your financial support of the Waterfront Botanical Gardens project is critical at this early stage.



Join us today! You’ll support a great cause and get an inside view as we realize our vision of building Louisville’s botanical gardens.



Find out how you can join other members of our community as we roll up our sleeves to make the gardens a reality.
