Cottage Garden


Often families or individuals are looking for an enduring reminder of a loved one who has passed away, or a way to honor someone special in their lives. The Ogden Botanical Gardens offers an opportunity for anyone to adopt-a-tree in that persons name and label it with a special plaque. Participation in the Adopt-A-Tree program not only provides a lasting reminder of significant individuals in our lives, but it enhances the quality of the Gardens.
