As a City of Kennesaw Botanical Garden, the mission of Smith-Gilbert Gardens is to serve as a resource for conservation, education and the enjoyment of horticulture, fine arts and historic preservation.

Smith-Gilbert Gardens is supported, in part, by memberships, donations, and funds raised through the Rose Garden Gala and Garden Gallop sponsored by the Smith-Gilbert Gardens Foundation – a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.
