What are supporters saying?

"As longtime members, we like to donate to the Society because you help northern gardeners create a greener world. Thank you for all the work you do.” 

          —Barrie and Maeve, donors since 2010

“I work in a garden center and I know that education is key to a successful gardening experience. I donate to MSHS every year because they offer the best programs to support gardeners in this area.”

          — Terry B, Heirloom Circle member and donor since 2005

“I so appreciate the work you do. You helped me identify the plant trying to devour my yard and told me how to get rid of it. Love your garden tours and events, informative articles and social media posts, in addition to the work you do in schools and communities. You are the best of what we are in Minnesota.”  

          — Susan S, donor since 2018

“MSHS does so much good—it has programs that make a real, sustainable difference, and it needs support. MSHS is the place to go for all things gardening!”
