In 2023 we completed a Strategic Planning process to chart NYBG’s future. The entire NYBG community collaborated to envision where we want to be in 2030 and how we will get there, focusing on five strategic objectives:
Environmental Action: NYBG will investigate, elevate, and amplify the role of plants in solving the climate and biodiversity crises.
Bronx-Forward: NYBG will respond to the interests and opportunities of our borough—a diverse, vibrant, immigrant and multi-ethnic community that is emblematic of today’s America.
Power of Place: NYBG will inspire more diverse audiences to seek beauty, knowledge, and wellbeing in the natural world through education and experiences that can only be found at the Garden.
Digital Impact: NYBG will become a leading online global resource through our unparalleled collections, horticultural knowledge, and plant science expertise.
Management Excellence: NYBG will be a model in the cultural and nonprofit sector, making us a premier place to work and a highly resilient, environmentally sustainable, collaborative, and effective organization.
Branching Out: A Strategic Plan for 2024-2030 builds on our strengths so that we will be just as relevant and essential in 2030 as we were at our founding in 1891.
