Mission & Vision

Mission Toronto Botanical Garden connects people and plants, fostering sustainable communities and developing reciprocal relationships with nature through lifelong learning.

Vision Toronto Botanical Garden is a garden for all; a diverse community that recognizes the life-giving role of nature, working together for a more sustainable world. TBG relies on the support of individuals, corporations, and foundations.

Over 95% of our operating budget is self-generated income through the revenues earned by education programs and courses, membership, rentals, retail operations, and special events, and through the generous support of many donors. We also thank the City of Toronto for its $25,000 annual support. Toronto Botanical Garden educates over 7,000 children and 10,000 adults annually with nature-based programming that connects people to plants and the natural world.

We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
