The Horticultural Society of Maryland, as part of their initial fundraising for the building of The Vollmer Center at Cylburn Arboretum, pledged to design, build and maintain the garden at the front entrance of the new horticultural center. Formally dedicated on September 9, 2014 after four years of design and planning, the new Vollmer Center Garden promises to welcome visitors with an array of horticultural treasures for years to come. Special fundraising events, such as the Tashiding Garden Party, will provide funding for it’s continued care and maintenance.
