2016 Membership Program Changes

Exciting changes have come to the Garden membership program.

Members are vital to the Garden's success. Members visit, attend events, take classes, bring friends and family, and share and support our mission. Members help us maintain our venues as must-visit destinations. Members ensure we provide quality programming in our community and across the globe. Members help us grow.

Members also tell us what they value and how they use their benefits. The Garden is constantly working to optimize each member's experience and celebrate the role members play in our success.

We are pleased to offer the following enhancements in 2016 based on member requests and needs:

  • Military appreciation all year long: 20% off memberships with a military ID.
  • New Individual membership for one adult.
  • More opportunities to enjoy the Doris I. Schnuck Children's Garden.
  • Membership level names that more accurately reflect benefits.
  • Admission for Garden Glow.
Check out the new program FAQ and the detailed overview of new membership levels, prices and benefits below.
