Pinwheels in Motion

by Albert Brian Vick,  Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Community Kitchen Garden Coordinator

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.

Jonah Holland is Digital Content Manager at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, where she has worked for 14 years overseeing social media, the blog, and the website. She is also a mom, yogi, open water swimmer, gardener, and seeker. She's been known to go for a walk in the Garden and come back with hundreds of plant photos, completely inspired to write her next blog post.
