Purchase a Memorial and Support the Gardens

There are many ways to make a meaningful and lasting contribution to the Monk Botanical Gardens. A donation offers a unique opportunity to honor the special people in your life. Gifts may be purchased in loving memory of a cherished friend, relative or to celebrate an anniversary, achievement or special event.

A variety of benches, trees, and plantings are available to donors who wish to have their name or the name of a loved one associated with the gift. Or, some donors may wish to give in support of the various major project elements in the Gardens. All donations must be compatible with the overall Garden plan.  Anonymous contributions will be respected, of course. 

To order a bench or paver download the brochure here.

Trees (and plaque)

Trees can be donated but must be compatible with the overall Garden plan. The donation amount must cover the cost of the tree, and transportation and planting. Minimum $500. Check with Gardens officials on your interest in donating trees (715-261-6147).


You can purchase a commemorative paver located in the Kitchen Garden area.  Pavers vary in price depending on the number of lines engraved.  


Plantings can be donated but must be compatible with the overall Garden plan. Costs include not only the plantings, but ground preparation and installation. Groups can also install and adopt a specific garden (e.g. The Master Gardeners of North central Wisconsin are installing a Hosta Garden and will be responsible for its upkeep.) Prices for this will vary depending upon the size and scope of the plantings.

Garden elements 

Donations can be made to cover the cost of the various major elements of the Monk Botanical Gardens. Give us a call at 715-261-6309 to discuss. Donors of major elements are identified in signage at the site.
