Best Holiday Lights
It has been my incredible honor to work at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden for the past 10 years. I truly love this place and have been blessed with meaningful work that I enjoy more than I could ever dream of. I spend each day here side-by-side with passionate, dedicated volunteers and colleagues who strive each day to make this world a better place.
The programs here at Lewis Ginter are diverse and far-reaching. We work on everything from preparing youth who have developmental disabilities for the workforce, to planting an urban orchard, to growing food for the hungry, to therapeutic horticulture programming, to teaching kids about nature and ecosystems and helping youngsters learn where their food comes from. We work to bring more green spaces to Richmond, we train citizens in community-building and sustainable horticulture, supply community greening toolkits, and whenever we can, we help dreams come true. Not only do we hold classes in gardening, art, yoga, and intuitive eating, but we also host workshops for educators each year so we can reach even more students. We take pride in sharing the Garden. Thanks to sponsors, we offer several free admission days each year and are always looking for new ways to be a better community member, to become YOUR garden; to make Richmond, Va. proud.
