Making a Difference
Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is a place where plants -- and people -- grow. See the gardens and facilities, read stories about our plants and people, and learn more about the Garden's history.
Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is also extending beyond traditional boundaries to have a positive impact and to enrich daily lives. The Garden is growing fresh produce for the hungry; actively participating in urban greening and water management initiatives; contributing to economic development and work-force training; and educating diverse youth and adult audiences about critical issues related to the interdependence of plants and people.
Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden enlightens and inspires its constituents through its outstanding botanical collections, horticultural displays and landscape design. We engage our constituents with the natural world through interpretation, programs, educational resources and outreach. We advocate for sustainability and stewardship of our planet.
Through botanical, horticultural and educational excellence, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden will reveal the unity and integration of human and plant life, celebrate the fundamental significance of the natural world, and enrich our community and beyond.
