Update for 22/04/2014 22 April 2014
The Friends of the Wellington Botanic Garden are raising money to pay for the garden. Using funds already raised, we hope to start construction on the first stage of the garden in January 2015. But to meet the goal of completing the garden by February 2016, we need other generous supporters. We estimate that the design, construction, education programme and long-term management of the Childrenfs Garden will cost up to $2.5 million. There is still $1.7 million to raise from philanthropic, corporate and community support.
