Founded in 1972, the Horticultural Society is the IMA‘s special interest group for its gardens and offers members opportunities to share gardening experience and expertise. Horticultural Society members enjoy lectures featuring noted local, national and international speakers, travel opportunities to gardens throughout the US and opportunities to volunteer in the IMA gardens, greenhouse, and the Horticultural Society Library.
The Horticultural Society is led by a Board of Directors and is advised by Jonathan Wright, The Ruth Lilly Deputy Director for Horticulture and Natural Resources, as well as a Museum Affiliate liaison.
