Cultivate. Educate. Celebrate.
How does the Garden help you grow? The Garden means something different for every one of the 140,000 visitors who stroll, play and discover the grounds each year. The family who uses the Garden as a 'staycation' from their busy lives, the couple who enjoy a date night with a picnic in the Meditation Garden or the garden lover who is inspired everytime they visit. Celebrating 30 years of history this spring, the Garden is so thankful for all who have made it what it is today, a community destination.
At the Garden, we love the ‘awe-ha’ moments that light up the faces of young and old alike when they connect nature and knowledge. We see this everyday whether it be a young girl delighted to get her hands dirty while planting a flower for the first time or the woman who realized that giving an extra $20 a year, beyond membership, really does make a difference in our ability to continue and create youth education programs, new garden beds and additions to the Children's Adventure Garden.
It’s our daily mission to enrich life by promoting the enjoyment of plants. Your contributions help the Garden grow and provide families, of all ages, enriching and gratifying experiences that they will keep throughout their lives.
Nestled at the base of the Boise Foothills, the Idaho Botanical Garden is dedicated to enhancing our community’s quality of life through cultivating a love of nature and celebrating intellectual curiosity in people of all ages. The Garden offers numerous programs and opportunities for children and families to “unplug” and get back to nature.

The Garden relies on memberships, program fees and donations to sustain educational programming and plant collections and to enable future development.
