Since 1984 Columbia Green has helped Columbia and the midlands of South Carolina put out the welcome mat. Evidence of the organization's work radiates in community parks, medians, major gateways, and in your neighborhoods, with plantings of flowers, shrubs, and trees that delight the eye and lift the spirit.
Columbia Green is most recognized for the landscaped medians throughout Columbia. In addition, money is raised and granted to civic, non-profit, and neighborhood associations to underwrite projects that re-flourish, revive and enhance public spaces with renewed landscaping.
There are many ways to get involved.

The Midlands Shows its Generosity
On May 5th Midland Gives raised over $1,543,023.65 for 251 local nonprofit entities. Columbia Green was one of those. We were selected as one of the organizations invested in community improvement. Through this one-day of giving we were able to raise over $1,500.00 toward our projects to beautify the greater Columbia area. A major portion of the funds raised came from a match of $1,000 provided by a generous anonymous donor.
Midlands Gives is a way for each of us to come together and give back to our community through supporting local organizations “that make a difference” including Columbia Green. As each of us is more connected to the place we live, work, and play through such efforts, the more robust our community becomes and the happier we are to call it home.
Three cheers for our supporters who donated to Columbia Green and helped to make our participation in this event, and the resulting enhancement of our neighborhoods, a success.
Thank You, Gracias, Merci, Danke Schon…
A sincere Thank You to the many people who helped to make the 2015 Annual Festival of Gardens a success. The garden owners in WildeWood did an amazing job in sprucing up their already outstanding landscapes. And, the WildeWood Garden Club deserves special recognition for their assistance in recruiting and organizing both gardeners and volunteers. Speaking of volunteers, over 40 Columbia Green members and others gave up time on their weekend to work the registration table, greet visitors in the gardens, or assist with the tea party.
This year we had an impressive roster of sponsors for the event. Their support helped to defray the costs of the event so that part of their funding as well as all of the profits from tickets can now go into our grants program and to help fund the changing plantings in the street medians.
