Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden has a new installation in the Children’s Garden: 4,000 blue & silver pinwheels. It’s small in terms of square footage, but it’s really cool to see, particularly on a robin’s egg blue sky day. The “Pinwheels for Prevention Garden” is installed in observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each pinwheel represents a child in Virginia who has been served during the past year by Prevent Child Abuse Virginia’s Healthy Families program.
