Garden Stories

Celebrating 30 Years

Tuesday, January 15, 2019
by Ben Futa | Executive Director

The Garden celebrates a major milestone in 2019: its 30th Anniversary. A moment like this doesn’t happen by accident, nor does it happen often. Three decades of exceptional horticulture, outreach, and education is a tremendous achievement, one made possible by countless individuals who have shared their time, talent and treasure with us. From Ethel Allen (the “Allen” of Allen Centennial Garden) and her generous donation that kick-started the Garden’s construction and sustains us to this day, to our exceptional volunteers, UW students, faculty and staff, our Friends of Allen Centennial Garden members, our donors, our visitors from Madison and beyond and our colleagues in the horticulture industry –– thank you all for allowing us to celebrate this moment.
