The Fight for Sunlight is a grassroots effort to prevent massive high-rise towers from blocking sunlight to our greenhouse complex. Specifically situated for access to sunlight, this complex is the beating heart of the Garden, housing 20 percent of our collection—including rare and endangered orchids, cacti, and bonsai—as well as the growing facilities that help replenish all 52 acres of the Garden. Towers at this site would disrupt these vital facilities and the beloved educational programs that rely on them. Text SUNLIGHT to 484848 to join the campaign.
