Welcome

Welcome to GeorgesonGardens.org, the new homepage for the softer side of the Georgeson Botanical Garden, & the homepage for the Georgeson Botanical Garden Society. Here you can find things like upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and visiting information.

You might be wondering, “Well what is GeorgesonBotanicalGardens.org?” This is the Official Homepage of the UAF Georgeson Botanical Garden, and will continue to be the source for the academic side of the Gardens.

Georgeson Botanical Garden Designs Need Help

Be the inspiration behind any of four new projects. The Georgeson Botanical Garden Society and the Alaska Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects invite design proposals from any humans on planet Earth. The contest is over but help is still needed to get the projects rolling.

Member Potluck and Japanese Exchange Great Success

Lots of good food, sunshine, and visiting with friends and new aquaintances. "American fare" was the theme, to give the Japanese exchange students a taste of local food. Our members outdid themselves with all kinds of salads and desserts to add to the grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. Thirsts were quenched with rhubarb drink, hot tea and iced tea. Thanks to all who volunteered and participated! GBGS has two more events next week. We need volunteers to donate appetizers for each event. Contact Marsha Munsell at 590-2076 if you would like to help.
