Become a Friend of the Van Vleck House & Gardens

Friends are the backbone of our organization.  It is Friends' support that allows us to protect and
preserve this most precious gift.  Unlike many parks and green spaces in our community,  the Van Vleck House  &  Gardens does not receive any municipal or county operating support. Our gates are open because of the generosity of our Friends.  It is your dollars that staff our offices, maintain our grounds and allow us to offer outstanding educational programs


Did you know, that in addition to reduced admission on most of our educational programming and advance notice of our events, as a Friend of Van Vleck you can:

Take advantage of Early Bird shopping hours at our annual Plant Sale
Purchase discount tickets to the Roses to Rock Gardens private home garden tour
Receive reciprocal benefits at other public gardens through the American Horticultural Society Admissions Program. For details and a listing of participating gardens, click here.

Join online here and Become a Friend 


The Friends Committee is excited to be introducing a new membership level - the "WISTERIA". For an annual contribution of $2,500, supporters will receive all the benefits of a Friends membership as well as two tickets to each of our signature special events and be listed in the programs as Patrons:  the Deck the Halls cocktail party, the Spring Plant Sale and Reception, and the Roses to Rock Gardens tour. In addition, we will honor your sustaining support with recognition in our fall and spring newsletters. 

No matter what level of support you choose, the Van Vleck House and Gardens is honored to count you among its Friends. Know that your tax-deductible contribution is helping to make the world a greener place, right here in your own community. We simply couldn't do it without you.
