Become a member

Goodell Gardens and Homestead relies upon memberships not only to help us reach our operational funding needs, but also as proof of community and regional support for the mission of Goodell Gardens. This support also helps the Gardens receive other forms of funding, such as grants, that will make the long-range plan for our site become a reality that much sooner. Please consider becoming an annual member and help the Gardens continue to grow.

Members at all levels will receive Free Daily Admission to Goodell Gardens and Musical Events, reduced admission to Educational and Special Events, and free admission and/or other benefits at nearly 300 gardens in the US and Cayman Islands through the American Horticultural Society’s Reciprocal Admissions Program.

Members also receive their choice of digital or print subscriptions to our tri‐annual newsletter, The Garden Gate. (Student‐level members only receive digital editions).
