from the president Beyond Our Borders Garden borders define and contain the landscape. This year we have sought to go beyond our borders by incorporating native Florida ecosystem plantings and agriculture into new garden areas to give a better sense of place and connectedness to our region. We are also planning educational programs that that will go beyond our borders to connect with new audiences both here and throughout the State.

Design Most notably was the work we began in early 2013 with landscape architect Thomas Woltz and his team at Nelson Byrd Woltz to design the garden projects in Phase I of our award-winning Master Plan. In 2013, this plan received the highest award from the Florida chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA)–the Frederic B. Stresau Award. This year-and-a-half design process has pushed the boundaries of our garden both figuratively and literally with plans for a Children’s Garden, Kitchen Garden, Pollinator Garden and Florida Wild Garden, as well as a new circulation path that will provide better access for all.

Education We also began to put a finer point on our new educational partnership with the University of Florida Institute for Food

& Agricultural Science Extension Service. Dr. Cynthia Klemmer was hired as our new Director of Education in September and has been working to create a program called Gardens for Life. This educational outreach program will bring edible gardening to schools and communities in a multicounty region. Florida Extension Service staff will have office space at the Gardens to provide technical, administrative and logistical support to schools and communities. We will also be offering more educational opportunities on site to our members and visitors.

The Carillon Geert D’hollander, our fourth Carillonneur to serve in 84 years, completed his first season with us in 2012-2013. He is truly a musician who recognizes no borders when it comes to carillon music. From his innovative arrangements and new carillon compositions to instructing students, Geert is bringing a new level of excellence to the carillon program. This summer, he traveled extensively to perform and conduct master workshops in the U.S. and Europe.

annual report 2013 | from the president

The Gardens & Conservation “Beyond our borders” was definitely the mantra for our horticulture and conservation staff this year. New plantings expanded our palette of native and blooming plants. A path on the Tower Lawn was reopened after many decades to give visitors a closer view of the brass door. Our behind-thescenes projects included expanding the nursery to begin growing hard-to-find varieties of plants for the future garden expansion. We experimented with bio-char and vermiculture to improve the soil in planting beds around the Visitor Center, and published three research articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Our dedicated conservation team expanded their reach this year with rare plant introductions at four different sites around the State, inluding the first population introduction of a critically-endangered plant onto private lands. The type of research our team is conducting on the microhabitats of rare plants has seldom been done so as to push the boundaries of understanding of what these plants need to survive. Spring 2013 saw the opening of our new 1.5-mile Preserve Trail and picnic shelter along the entrance road, and an outdoor classroom was built next to the Lake Wales


High School on the Bok Tower Gardens Preserve. Interpretive signs and wildflower plantings attracted many visitors to this trail to explore beyond the borders of the historic core garden.

Visitation for 20122013 remained strong at 149,226, and memberships reached 4,407 households.

Retail Services & Marketing

Attendance for our events, programs, and Pinewood Estate tours exceeded all expectations this year. Visitation to Pinewood Estate doubled in 2012-2013, and education programs more than doubled in participation to 3,802 students. The Boktoberfest Plant Sale reached a record high of 7,934 attendees, and our wedding rental revenue exceeded $70,000. We also saw many more tour groups this year – attendance rose from 5,574 to 6,225 people.

Our Blue Palmetto Café and Tower & Garden Gift Shop set a new revenue record again this year by grossing $1.14 million. We released the Rizzoli Press publication Bok Tower Gardens: America’s Taj Mahal in time for Edward Bok’s 150th birthday. I was honored to co-author this book with architect and artist Kenneth Treister, featuring photographs by Dan Forer. The marketing department continued to innovate and extend to the furthest reaches of cyberspace. Among this year’s highlights was the unveiling of a new website with fresh, “responsive design” technology, which automatically adjusts the layout to the mobile phone or device it is being viewed on. We increased our investments in social media marketing and secured grants from Visit Central Florida to promote and advertise several of our major events.

People, Events & Programs Our passionate corps of 375 volunteers donated 48,034 hours of work in all areas of our operations. We could not accomplish all that we do without this incredible volunteer staff. Our Board of Directors have stepped up the to the leadership role in our design planning and fund raising efforts, which is making our future garden expansion a reality.

you know, was wellknown for challenging the status quo and pushing the boundaries of conventional thought. As we enter our 85th year as a public garden, the board, staff and I are honored to be stewards and visionaries of Edward Bok’s legacy. We invite you, our supporters and friends, to join us in continuing to push beyond the borders of the Gardens.

Concert Under the Stars found its audience this year by pushing the musical genre boundaries to feature an eclectic mix of “jazz grass” and Americana music.

Philanthropy Our vision for the Gardens to stay relevant and sustainable can’t be achieved without reaching beyond our borders to inspire philanthropy. Staff traveled from Miami to Maine to cultivate support for the future and to cultivate support for our $12 million Preserve the Legacy, Steward the Future campaign. We have made many new friends and revived many former friendships in our travels, which bodes well for our future.

David Price, President

In October 2012, I accepted the DutchAmerican Heritage Award on behalf of Edward W. Bok for his contributions to this country. Edward Bok, as many of

friends of the gardens The Board of Directors, together with staff, deepened our relationships with our Friends locally and throughout the State as we began to grow “beyond our borders” in our philanthropy. We celebrated many new gifts this year for our education and cultural programs, as well as for our Preserve the Legacy, Steward the Future campaign. Our media, program and community partners and volunteers all continue to grow in number. Whether the gifts are of time or treasure, it is truly a fruitful time for giving to the Gardens, and we have you to thank.
