QBG @ Home
To support New York City’s effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), the Garden is temporarily closed and all public events through May are canceled.
It saddens us that in this time of social distancing, we cannot be the place “where people, plants, and cultures meet” (our beloved tagline!).
But let’s keep in touch and the love for people, plants, and cultures alive!
Garden staff are dedicated to sharing moments of inspiration, beauty, and knowledge with you through our social media and online channels. To see the latest and enjoy QBG at home, including footage from the Garden, story time and crafts, classroom tutorials, DIY projects, and so much more, be sure to check out all the nature- and garden-inspired content below and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
If you are able to, we ask that you consider donating to the Garden below or via our donation form.
