We recognise that our Gardens are special places for many people to enjoy time with their families or a tranquil respite away from the hubbub of daily life.
Bench sponsorship offers you the opportunity to have a personal and tangible place in our Gardens at Benmore, Dawyck and Logan to remember someone dear to you or commemorate a special event.
For a gift of £3,000* you can sponsor a new bench for 10 years.
In recognition of your gift we will engrave a bench plaque with an inscription of your choice and provide maintenance for your sponsored bench for 10 years. Your generous support will enable the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to continue our vital community engagement, education, plant science and horticulture work.Sponsor a bench
