Delaware Botanic Gardens Executive Director Sheryl Swed recently announced that virtual video tours are available on the gardens’ website at www.delawaregardens.org/our-virtual-garden.
Swed said, “While we are currently closed due to COVID-19, this is a way to bring our gardens’ spring beauty to your home virtually. The videos showcase our plant collections and feature our natural landscape. We hope our viewers can enjoy a brief garden respite in these challenging times.”
The organization will continue to share the gardens virtually with images and videos on social media and the website.
Brian Trader, deputy executive director and director of horticulture, said, “We hope our virtual tours help connect our members, volunteers and community with our garden. We have captured features of both our Folly Garden and Woodland Gardens to inspire viewers through our beauty and nature. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the gardens in the future.”
The mission of the Delaware Botanic Gardens is to create an inspirational, educational, and sustainable public botanic garden in southern Delaware for the benefit and enjoyment of all. The Delaware Botanic Gardens will celebrate the coastal plain with a sustainable garden that delights and educates visitors, and inspires them to preserve Delmarva’s native landscape.
