Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona, celebrates its 85th Anniversary this year!

One was Swedish botanist Gustaf Starck, who found like-minded residents by posting a sign that read “Save the Desert.” With the support of social influencers of the time such as Gertrude Divine Webster, the Garden’s presence grew. Nearly eight decades later, thanks to leadership and investments from many individuals, Desert Botanical Garden has blossomed from a dream into a living museum.
