We’re going virtual! With the safety of our guests in mind, we will not be hosting TasteBud in person at the Garden this year. As an important part of our Garden family, we hope you’ll consider still participating in our online auction or choose to make a qualified charitable donation so that we can continue to connect people and plants.

Guests will have the opportunity to safely see auction items in person at the Garden from 9 am-5 pm daily during the virtual event. You can also ask questions about how to bid or make a donation at that time.

Item Pick-Up

Winners can pick up their items from 9 am-7 pm on Friday, May 14 at Green Bay Botanical Garden. Winners unable to pick up their items on May 14 can make arrangements for pickup by contacting events@gbbg.org or 920.490.9457.

Not interested in the auction, but still want to help?

Please consider a donation to support our mission either online or by mail.

$300 Deduction for Qualified Charitable Donations
Please consider making a donation to the Garden this year in lieu of attending TasteBud in person and bid on silent auction items virtually. Your donation means we can continue to connect people with plants all year long. The pandemic relief bill signed in December, extends the $300 universal, above-the-line deduction for non-itemizers through 2021 and also allows joint filers to deduct up to $600 for cash donations to qualified charitable organizations.

Proceeds support our mission to connect people with plants by providing year-round educational and recreational experiences for everyone in an environment that engages, inspires and refreshes.

Thank You to Our Auction Donors
