MultiTable Gives Back to Community with Donation to Desert Botanical Garden

MultiTable, one of the nations leading height-adjustable standing desks and ergonomic accessories manufacturers, joined the Desert Botanical Garden team as they revealed their new Marley Horticulture Learning Lab in Phoenix, March 4-5.

The 140-acre botanical garden located in Papago Park has more than 21,000 plants, one-third of which are native to the area, including 139 species which are rare, threatened or endangered. There will be approximately 300 new plants added to the collection located in the Marley Horticulture Learning Lab.

Initial planning for the learning lab started 3 years ago and it wasn’t until February 1 of 2016 when the Desert Botanical Garden finally broke ground to start construction. A longtime volunteer veteran of the Desert Botanical Garden approached MultiTable with the Botanical Garden vision of including height adjustable desks in the Marley Horticulture Learning Lab.

The MultiTable Standing Workstations will allow the Desert Botanical Garden to achieve higher engagement with their students, versatility with their space and flexibility in their use for the different audiences that will be utilizing the new learning center. The education department at the Desert Botanical Garden will be able to offer new programs such as a Botanical Artistry class where students can utilize the custom drafting style desk tops that MultiTable customized especially for the learning lab.

Our goal was always to provide a learning environment where students didn’t just sit in a traditional classroom and listen to a lecture, while watching a slideshow for two hours. We want our students to be active in the their learning process by doing and practicing in a safe environment, not sitting and listening and MultiTable helped us achieve this.
— Tina Wilson, Director of Education at the Desert Botanical Garden.

MultiTable is donating six hand crank MultiTable Height Adjustable Standing Desks with special custom tags donated by Phoenix Custom Lasering. The Standing Desks will be complemented with custom drafting-style black desktops, power strips and special MultiTable Wheel Kits for easy mobility around the learning center.

“MultiTable is honored to be donating to the Desert Botanical Garden,” shared Drew deWeerd, President of MultiTable. “It’s very humbling to be part of such an amazing group of people working hard to create such an incredible learning center for the Phoenix community. We had no hesitation when it came to the donation for the Desert Botanical Garden.”
