Become One of the Many People Making a Difference
Leach Botanical Garden only exists today because of the individual commitment of many people. For the past thirty-nine years, Leach Garden Friends has kept the Garden open to the public and true to the legacy of John and Lilla Leach, who created the spirit of “Sleepy Hollow” and collected and planted the botanical specimens which make this place unique.
Volunteer! There Are So Many Ways to Lend a Helping Hand
Today approximately one hundred active volunteers and over five hundred members and business sponsors carry that tradition forward. This support is critical to Leach Botanical Garden as we begin to shape its next thirty years.
