Volunteer Guide


Donations are accepted to help care for the garden. They are given to the Wayne County Foundation in the name of the Richmond Rose Garden

No admission is charged to visit the garden, and the only source of funding is through generous donations from community members, visitors, and travelers who find value in the garden. No tax dollars are used to maintain this garden. While any visit to the garden promises to be beautiful, the underlying needs to maintain that beauty are costly. Please consider making a donation toward the maintenance of the garden.


As a unique memorial or honorary gift, for a donation of $100, the back of a historic star brick can be inscribed with words of your choosing and added to the Memorial Walkway.  Leave a message for Steve Hayes Jr at the Wayne County Foundation for more information (765-962-1638). Please use our Memorial Brick Form.




The garden also welcomes corporate donations toward specific needs and projects that will both benefit the garden and highlight the businesses involved in the community. If your business would be interested in this sort of tax-deductible gift there are many needs and opportunities available.
