San Francisco Board of Supervisors and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee: Support the Botanical Garden

    1. Petition by

      San Francisco Botanical Garden Society

It’s budget season in San Francisco. For us, that means the Board of Supervisors is voting on two important proposals impacting the future of the Botanical Garden; approval of our lease and management agreement, which governs the relationship between the Botanical Garden Society and the City; and renewal of a much needed revenue source for our Garden, the non-resident entrance fee.

We need your help today, please show your support so we can continue to maintain a world-class Botanical Garden here in San Francisco.

The lease and management agreement is so important – it sets the framework for how the Botanical Garden Society and the City will continue to work together for years to come.

The non-resident fee is providing an important new source of revenue for the Botanical Garden. We are on track to bring in more than $600,000 this fiscal year to support the Garden. This is a non-resident fee only, charging $7 for people who live outside the City to help fund the operation of the Garden and to support education and community outreach programs, including our youth education program that serves 10,000 San Francisco children.

As a supporter of the Garden, we need your help to ensure the Board of Supervisors approves these critical measures. Our community should be proud of the almost 60-year partnership that makes the Botanical Garden – its plant collections, its garden displays and its programs – possible.

      Does Rose Pak want to raze the entire park & build skyscrapers?

      As a local San Franciscan, visiting the botanical gardens is my favorite perk. Meanwhile, I want to see it flourish and think it's fair to charge non-locals a reasonable fee to come in and enjoy it with us.

      My wife died 4 years ago at age 63. She left large sums of money to the Botanical Garden and the SF Park Alliance. If the Board of Supervisor do not support financially, as the last

      surviving surviving member of the family my trust will not endow a substantial amount

      of my trust to the SF partks. Or any other SF public endeavors.
