The Holden Arboretum Annual Report 2012

From the Chairman of the Board and the President and CEO Liberty Hyde Bailey, horticulturist, botanist and cofounder of the American Society for Horticultural Science, once said that “a garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.” We’ve taken that to heart at The Holden Arboretum this year, laboring to turn our intentions and ambitions, spelled out in our New Leaf Master Plan, into a number of projects that further Holden’s role as an educational resource and enhance the visitor experience. The largest and most ambitious of these projects – a new, 4.5 acre Rhododendron Discovery Garden and adjoining Tree Allée – is now under construction near Corning Lake. Scheduled to open in May 2013, this is the first new garden constructed at Holden in more than a decade. Once complete it will tell the story of the plants that make up the rhododendron family, showcasing Northeast Ohio’s role as a hub for rhododendron hybridization and help our guests learn how to plant and care for these beautiful woody plants in their home gardens. The new tree allée will become a new Holden landmark, leading guests from the Display Garden to the new garden under what will one day be a canopy of shade and flowering trees.

Paul R. Abbey Chairman of the Board

While the work on the Rhododendron Discovery Garden and Tree Allée are the largest projects being undertaken at Holden, they are not the only changes being made to the arboretum’s landscape. Thanks to a generous gift from Mike and Carol Sherwin, made in honor of Bob Bergman, Holden has also completed construction on Meditation Point. Located just off the newly improved Woodland Trail – another project made possible thanks to the support of generous donations – Meditation Point offers visitors a place to pause, relax and be alone with their thoughts, a precious gift in this hectic world. Work has also begun on much needed renovations to the Warren H. Corning Library and the former sugarhouse at the Warren Bicknell Jr. Sugarbush. The renovations to the library will refresh the space, making it more welcoming for guests seeking to expand their knowledge of horticulture. Renovations at the former sugarbush will transform the space into classrooms for Holden’s Growing Students in Science programs as well as adult programs. These projects would not be possible without the contributions from our volunteers, friends and donors. Your support is a vital component in the process of making our vision for the future of The Holden Arboretum a reality. We thank you for your generous support.

Albert Fairchild Holden Society The Albert Fairchild Holden Society was established in 1998 to recognize those individuals whose generosity and foresight supports The Holden Arboretum with either a planned gift (will, trust, insurance, life income arrangement such as an annuity, etc.) or conservation easement. This year we recognize all individuals, those living and deceased, whose philanthropy places them in this distinguished group of donors. Gifts from Members of the Albert Fairchild Holden Society live on in perpetuity and help to ensure the ongoing financial strength and programmatic vitality of Holden.
