What is GROW membership?

GROW membership is a joint membership between the Fort Worth Botanic Garden (FWBG) and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT). GROW members receive free admission to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and BRIT.

Why is BRIT managing the membership program?

The success of joint GROW education and volunteer programs led to a collaborative membership program. BRIT, which already had a membership team in place, agreed to administer the joint GROW membership program with net revenues split between the Botanic Garden and BRIT.

What if I’m already an active member at Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) or Fort Worth Botanical Society?

If you’re already a member, you’re already a GROW member. Until your current membership expires, you’ll receive a complimentary GROW membership. Active Fort Worth Botanical Society members should click here and fill out the form to become a GROW member.

What happens to my membership with the Fort Worth Botanical Society?

After April 1, 2019 a GROW membership is necessary to gain Garden and BRIT benefits. If you want more information about your Society membership, contact the Fort Worth Botanical Society office at (817) 392-5548.

What if I have a membership for another nearby garden?

Some other garden memberships will get you admission to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens but, no discounts on events, gift shops, invites and other GROW member benefits qualify.

Can I get into the Dallas Arboretum for free?

Yes, bring your GROW membership card(s) and valid ID to gain free main gate entry. Click here for a complete list of the 300+ reciprocal gardens. When visiting other gardens, we recommend contacting them for information.

Is a Partner level membership just for couples and families?

No. Adults and/or children under one household or immediate family can be on a membership together as long as the first and last names are listed.

If I purchase a Partner level membership, do I have to provide the names for everyone on the membership?

No. You don’t have to provide all names at the time of purchase, but to gain benefits 2 named adults (19+ years old) and children must be listed on membership. Adult children with disabilities are included. Contact the membership office to add names to your membership if not done so.

If I purchase a Patron to Sustainer level membership, do I have to list the guest(s)?

No. With these levels of membership you do not have to name the guests on your membership account. Please note, a named card holder at these levels is required for the guest to receive free admission.

Can I change the names under my membership at any time?

You can add up to 2 named adults and children living in one household with a Partner to Sustainer level membership if they haven’t been previously added. If names are already on the account, then the names cannot be changed.

Do children need membership cards to gain admissions?

As long as children 18 and under are listed on a Partner to Sustainer level membership, they will not need a membership card to gain entry into the Garden. Please note children 15 and under require adult supervision. All children under 6 years old will be free regardless of a membership.

What are guest passes?

Guest passes are Supporter level benefits. These are one-time use passes that gain admission into the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, including the Japanese Garden. 

What is a GROW Access membership?

This membership offers SNAP program recipients a $30 membership. Benefits reflect the GROW Partner membership level. Stop by the Fort Worth Botanic Garden or BRIT to get an Access membership.

What is a MusePass?
