Give the Gift of Goodell this GivingTuesdayNov 29, 12:00amThank you so much for your incredible support of Goodell Gardens & Homestead in 2022. Your generosity has made 2022 a year of significant growth for your Gardens.

Because of you, work continued on the trails and development of the northernmost 36 acres of the Goodell property. This includes opening the Cove and Woods Trails to the public, as well as beginning to re-cultivate former farm fields in preparation for wildflower meadows, native grasses, and future Gardens.

With your support, we were able to upgrade amenities for public and private events, including a 4-stall restroom trailer, and a 40x80’ tent for large gatherings and events. You also made it possible for an upgraded driveway, traffic pattern, and parking lot.

Your generosity helped us host nearly 350 students over 10 field trips, three 6-week series of Garden Sprouts Preschool, and a full season of programs for children in grades K-12. Guided tours and public programs were offered once again, and a guest speaker series featuring local experts was added.

Concerts, live theatre, wellness classes, festivals, and special events were held, including the return of Botanical Beverages and the inaugural Tree Hugger Trail Run. These beloved community events could not have happened without you.

We added to our arboriculture and horticulture collections while maintaining those plants that were already in our care. We worked with three different arborists to make sure the oldest of our trees were paid the special attention they deserve.

And behind the scenes, we continued to work on infrastructure, the Bank Barn restoration, and planning a new Visitor’s Center; each of these steps moving your Gardens toward implementing the Strategic Plan we first shared with you last year..

In the coming months, the Bank Barn re-siding project will be finished, a floor will be installed for that beautiful new tent, and we will carry on working on the fields and trails. A special area dedicated to educational programming is planned for installation in 2023, and we will persist working on those behind-the-scenes projects like razing the tenant house and preparing for the existing Welcome Center’s future transformation into a Museum honoring the Goodell Family.

Your assistance is essential to moving forward with these plans.
As we enter the Season of Giving, we ask you to consider making a year-end gift to help your Gardens grow. If you’re unable to give this year, please take care of your family first and know that we hope you see some relief soon. But, if you have the capacity to give, your Gardens need you.
Together, we can sustain the perennial creation of beautiful gardens and natural spaces where people visit to Enjoy, Gather, Learn, and Refresh. Please join us in giving the gift of Goodell to the community and region.

Goodell Gardens & Homestead is a public garden, accredited arboretum, and community gathering space in beautiful Edinboro, Pennsylvania. Goodell Gardens & Homestead creates beautiful gardens and natural spaces where people can visit to Enjoy, Gather, Learn, and Refresh.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
