Guided by Ms. Linda Jakubisin, little explorers will experience a fun hike through the Garden and a nature activity and/or craft. New nature experiences each week with themes such as leaves, trees, birds, wildlife, ponds, plants, bugs and the shapes and colors found in nature, often right under our feet.

Donors Double the Impact of Gifts to the Garden through Matching Grant

Mead Botanical Garden receives grant to create a new website from the Winter Park Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Central Florida Foundation.

Mead Botanical Garden has been selected to receive up to $10,000 in matching grant funds from the Winter Park Community Foundation to design a new website.  Mead Garden, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is seeking matching fund donations to assist with the project. Through the dollar-for-dollar grant, donors will double the impact of their contribution to the organization.

The grant will help further Mead Botanical Garden's mission of connecting people with nature by ­providing a dynamic website with a broad range of easy-to-find information about the Garden. The site will help those interested in planning a visit as well as showcase upcoming events and educational programs, plants, ecosystems and wildlife in the garden, and  provide venue rental information. 

Those wishing to help Mead achieve its goal of obtaining the full $10,000 grant may do so through Mead’s current website at www.meadgarden.org/donate, or contact Cynthia Hasenau, Mead’s Executive Director, for more information.

“We are grateful to the Winter Park Community Foundation for its continued support. This grant will help us build a website that will be a comprehensive source of information.  The new site will enable us to highlight concerts, classes, camps, and of course, the beauty of the garden,” said Hasenau.
