Facilities Director Edward Hemmings

Help me keep Lan Su Beautiful!

Each summer, the facilities staff at Lan Su tackles some nitty gritty maintenance tasks that keep the garden looking its best. This year, we are repainting posts, sealing floors, replacing lanterns and making important upgrades to the pond. The list goes on and on, and the cost of these projects adds up quickly.

But with your help, we can check-off our summer maintenance to-do list and get the garden in tip-top shape for everyone to enjoy.

Will you give $50 or more today to maintain the garden in the manner it deserves?

Learn more about Lan Su Chinese Garden at www.lansugarden.org.
