NJBG needs your help to save the charming and historic Pump House, one of the most iconic buildings in the NJ State Botanical Gardens. Built in the late 1800s, the Pump House is the first building you see when entering the gardens. It has long needed repair, with many missing shingles and large holes in its roof. Unfortunately, the State does not currently have the funds to do the work, so Skylands Association/NJBG has taken on the project. We were granted State approval to proceed on September 29, 2020, and architecural work has begun with reconstruction work to follow.
Please help us restore and preserve this beautiful historic building. We are asking you – our many thousands of visitors, supporters, volunteers, and members – to join us with a tax-deductible donation. Remember, the NJ State Botanical Gardens are your gardens and a wonderful benefit to all who visit, take pictures, and enjoy the many events we host each year, including our annual Plant Sale, Harvest Fest, Holiday Open House, Garden and Manor House tours, and great children’s events. This is especially true during the pandemic when NJBG offered thousands refuge from at home confinement.
Due to Covid-19, all our fund raising events have regrettably been cancelled this year. So please be generous – your tax-deductible donation will help save a wonderful piece of history!
