RESTORE: The Healing Power of Nature

Visit Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden to experience the restorative powers of nature, as you explore 50 acres of cultivated gardens, woodland paths and wild spaces along with the interconnectedness of people, plants and water.  Restore yourself through the healing power of nature.

We will celebrate the spring season with thousand and thousands of flowering cherries, daffodils, tulips and other springtime favorites. We have planted more than 33,000 spring bulbs this year! Throughout the seasons look for educational displays highlighting native plants and insects, water, ephemeral art, fairy houses on the Tree Trail and much more.  Enjoy the sweet sounds of nature.  Feel the gentle breezes take flight through the trees.  Breathe deeply in the fresh forest air. Smell newly opened blooms and earthy ferns. Come away feeling restored, and somehow healed with a deep understanding of the vital connection between ourselves and the natural world.
