Letters — Volunteers find joy in Botanic Gardens


Just a word of thanks for your enjoyable and informative story on the Delaware Botanic Gardens. As a husband-and-wife team who volunteer regularly at the garden and also attended the Annual Dinner last week, it was so gratifying to hear all of the positive and supportive comments from our guests! The Meadow and Woodland Gardens are beautiful already and will only improve as the plants become more established.

While the work can be hard, volunteering at DBG is such a pleasant and rewarding experience that we are thankful for each moment we spend there. As you suggest in your story, we believe that the Delaware Botanic Garden is a really big deal, and that generations of families, locals and vacationers alike, will visit the garden and be enriched by its beauty and tranquility.

Thank you again for your kind words, and we hope to see you all in the garden!

Kurt & Angela Schaab
