Rooted & Growing Capital Campaign

Dedicated education space and an environmentally friendly, efficient plant production greenhouse are desperately needed.

Your gift will be used to create dedicated education space for the first time in Olbrich's history, as well as to improve the efficiency, sustainability, and capacity of the production greenhouse. This project allows Olbrich to meet the growing needs of the community and botanical gardens.

Please join in adding your support to the Rooted & Growing Campaign. Your generous gift will enrich our community by engaging minds and building futures for decades to come.
