The Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation presents the plans to build the new Majeed Discovery Garden (MDG) at the Florida Botanical Gardens. We have been working diligently on this project, and we are very excited to announce it to the public.
Our Groundbreaking Ceremony took place on June 11, 2022, and construction will commence on July 5, with about an 11-month process.
Due to a rise in construction costs and materials, we have increased our fundraising goal, and encourage the community to view the project, and get inspired to give back.
$800,000 has been secured from additional donors, including a generous gift from the David Berolzheimer Foundation.
The Majeed Foundation has contributed $1,000,000.
The Florida Botanical Garden Foundation has provided $500,000+ for the initial costs.
Annual operational cost will be a function of general maintenance, programming, events, staffing requirements and volunteer participation
The Gardens are a 100-acre Park, managed by the Pinellas County Parks and Conservation Resources Department, that inspires and educates visitors by showcasing flora, fauna and natural resources in motivational surroundings that promote environmentally friendly techniques.
