Bricks & Benches: Leave a Legacy

To support the maintenance and enhancement of Wilmot Botanical Gardens’ horticultural beauty and the therapeutic horticulture program, you may purchase an engraved brick to be laid along one of the gardens’ paths or sponsor a bench as a resting spot at one of the gardens’ many scenic locations. The paths and benches provide a respite for patients and caregivers and increase accessibility for faculty, staff, students and the public to enjoy the gardens for generations to come. Consider leaving your legacy within this historic landmark today!
