A leading cultural institution in Central Massachusetts, Tower Hill Botanic Garden (THBG) is the only year-round public botanic garden in New England. THBG provides over 150,000 visitors each year with the opportunity to relax, learn, and connect with the natural world. In addition to its 17 distinct gardens, THBG offers two indoor conservatories and miles of woodland trails as well as a robust program and event schedule.

Guided by its rich history, THBG’s vision is to not only become a must-see destination for all, but a collection of people and plants that can make a difference beyond its boundaries. Through collaboration with others, Tower Hill will develop and disseminate plant-based solutions to societal issues and lead efforts to build a better world with plants and people. With strong strategic leadership and philanthropic giving, Tower Hill is on track to realize this vision.
