Look what you did in a day!

We are overwhelmed! Our community raised more than $4.5 million on May 7 for Give STL Day, including more than $12,700 for the Garden. These gifts provide critical operating support for our mission-focused teams across the Garden, including the EarthWays Center. Thank you for helping us stay strong in this uncertain time.

The Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 is having an impact on organizations across our community, and the Garden is no exception. While our grounds are closed to visitors, our work continues with a skeleton crew focused on caring for our living collections—including thousands of rare and endangered plant species. Garden scientists working in more than 30 countries cannot travel to study plants in the wild. Students, volunteers, and interns no longer have access to valuable resources and cannot provide “hands on” support of our mission.

EarthWays staff are shifting from spending 95% of their time out in the region to remote methods for responding to community sustainability needs.

We need your help more than ever before to sustain our programs in St. Louis and around the world.

Celebrating the EarthWays Center

The EarthWays Center IS sustainability. Every day, we work to help even more people across St. Louis recycle, be more energy efficient, and increase biodiversity in your own backyards. As the Garden's sustainability division, we want everyone to understand the links between our behavior and the health of our living Earth.
