Green Bay Botanical Garden connects people with plants by providing year-round educational and recreational experiences for everyone in an environment that engages, inspires, and refreshes.
Green Bay Botanical Garden will be the leading educational, recreational, social, and horticultural destination enriching the quality of life in the upper Midwest.
Our roots grow deep in northeast Wisconsin:

We help sustain our local community by sustaining the Earth:
Bulbs in the Ground
Permanent Plant Labels
The land on which the Garden is located is made available to the organization through a long-term lease from NWTC. The Garden and its board are legally independent of NWTC, but the two organizations mutually benefit from the relationship.
NWTC students and staff enjoy free general admission to the Garden, and their staff utilizes the Garden for meetings and events. Students in programs from Photography and Early Childhood Education to Sustainable Agriculture and Security utilize the Garden as a living laboratory. A portion of our general admission revenue helps to support student scholarships too.
The college also prints a majority of the Garden’s marketing materials throughout the year.
