News From The Garden, July 2023

Happy July 4th from the Garden!

Hans Christian Andersen wrote "Just living is not enough ... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."

Visit us this summer and enjoy it all in one place. Even when the gate is closed, the Garden is open to all every day from dawn to dusk and there is free parking on Melbourne Road. With a site full of flowers, forest, and features like our labyrinth and free little library, what will you explore today?

Cville Weekly Discovered our Garden!

Mary Esselman of Cville Weekly wrote an article about her visits to the Garden:

"'Botanical garden' is such a formal, science-y term for a place that feels like an enchanted nature park. But as if through osmosis, the garden makes “science” feel like an adventure, a gambol, even a brush with the sacred. Go for a butterfly walk or an arts program. Volunteer. Or just wander over and take to heart John Muir’s words, chalked on the garden’s blackboard: “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.”
