Will NelsonAbout the Instructor

As the Digital Content Strategist at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Will Nelson has not only found a career but a deep-rooted obsession that has continued to blossom. In 2021, Will took his love for plants to the next level and founded “Will To Plant,” a venture that includes a backyard plant nursery and tabling at local markets. His expertise has led him to conduct workshops on plants and mushroom cultivation all across Virginia. Through these endeavors, he has brought the wonders of nature closer to the community, inspiring many to develop their green spaces and cultivate their own gardens. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener looking to expand your skills or a complete beginner, Will’s workshops are designed to cater to all levels, as he believes that anyone can develop a green thumb with the right guidance and passion.
