About

Mission Statement
Established in Woodlawn, during the fall 2015, the Dorchester Botanical Garden, a 501-c 3 non-for-profit project is a living collection of native and cultivated plant species, displayed within a bio-diverse urban environment. Our goal is to educate, engage and inspire children, young people and adults about  the value of plant diversity, sustainability and community well being, thereby changing hearts and minds toward the natural world.

Goals and Objectives
Our goal is to develop community programs that will provide innovative ways to explore, understand and save plants. We will assist students of all ages explore hands-on learning activities necessary toward facing new challenges related to the loss of biodiversity, abandoned urban spaces and the impact of climate change.  We will do this by fostering an awareness and appreciation of local plant diversity.

We need your help to make this happen.  Please donate.
