What is the Gala?

One of our most important annual fundraisers, the Gala helps drive all MSHS programs, including Garden-in-a-Box and Minnesota Green. At this event, you can support the Hort by bidding on hard-to-find plants, wine and gift cards during a silent auction and raffle. In 2021, Bailey Nurseries and Monrovia revealed this season's hottest new plants and shared virtual behind-the-scenes tours of their facilities.

When is it?

Continuing our tender and cautious care for our members in this uncertain pandemic time, we have moved our beloved Spring Garden Gala to a pair of smaller fundraising garden gatherings in the summer. In the meantime, the programs this event supports expand each year and still need your support. Help us make sure that everyone has the chance to garden and learn to grow.
