We Grow More Than Just Plants

At the Garden, we see Mother Nature’s capabilities every day. Whether it’s beautiful blooms in the Tropical Heart of our Global Collection Garden or the fruits and vegetables nearing harvest in the Culinary Garden, there are abundant examples of growth all around us. But, if you don’t know where to look, nature’s most important impacts can often go unnoticed.

We get just as excited about the connections that grow among our visitors through their interactions with each other in the context of the natural surroundings as we do the latest buds or pollinator sighting. We hear the positive influence of nature in the laughter at our social events, and see it in the amazed faces of children at our youth activities. It’s obvious in the joyfulness of our Sunday Concert Series, and the relaxation that permeates our wellness classes.

So, if you’re looking for new ways to connect with your family, relieve the stress of your responsibilities, or find an environment that supports personal growth, embrace the power of nature. This month, take advantage of the remaining pre-summer opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with your loved ones. Whether it’s relaxing in your backyard, a quick stroll around the neighborhood, or a visit to the Garden, you’ll be glad you did.
