Become a part of The Garden’s legacy and sustainable future by participating in our Honor & Tribute Giving program. In key areas throughout The Garden you may have your name or the names of your loved ones inscribed on specially designed pavers and/or benches. This program is open to both private parties and our friends in the business community.

The Bench and Paver program offers two levels of participation as follows:

Front Gate Pavers

A limited number of pavers are located at the main entrance to the Garden and garner significant visibility. You may invest in one or more at $500 each.

Plaza Pavers

Located in the plaza just after you enter The Garden through the main entrance and in the plaza near the Gift Shop, you may invest in one or more of these pavers at $250 each.

Garden Benches

Sponsor a bench to commemorate or memorialize a person or event for $2500 for a 10-year period after which time you may renew your exclusive patronage of the bench.

To support The Garden through the Brick Paver and Garden Bench Program, please contact our Development Manager at 619-660-0614 x11.

“Friends of the Butterflies”

Pay tribute with a unique, handcrafted stained-glass butterfly sculpture. Your butterfly will be displayed in the California sycamore tree right outside the entry into the Butterfly Pavilion.
