The Missouri Botanical Garden invests significant resources in developing and sharing new discoveries in plant science and using that knowledge to help manage those ecosystems here and around the world. The Garden is equally committed to inspiring and educating all members of our local region about the benefits of being good environmental stewards and establishing sustainable communities through conservation, ecological restoration and responsible use of natural resources.

From our Zero Waste Ambassador service at Garden festivals and events to our use of renewable energy to our improved storm water management, we strive to make the most sustainable choices throughout all our facilities and at all our sites.
