Lotus Guild

Of all the plants in the world, the lotus (Nelumbo) and its unique life cycle are revered by many cultures as a symbol of self-regeneration, strength and perseverance. Emerging from mud, these exotic flowers open in the summer sun and close at night, a daily cycle of rebirth and enlightenment.

The Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden’s Lotus Guild is a group of visionary, forward-thinking supporters who have made estate-plan provisions to give a lasting gift to the Botanical Garden. As our Garden blooms for generations to come, Lotus Guild members leave a legacy that awakens beauty, enlightens minds and leaves a lifelong impression on all who experience our mission.

As a member of the Lotus Guild, you can ensure our roots are grounded in rich foundation that will allow the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden to flourish.
