Sheryl Swed, executive director of Delaware Botanic Gardens (DBG), announced on Tuesday that virtual video tours of the gardens are now available on the DBG website at www.delawaregardens.org/our-virtual-garden.
“While we are currently closed due to COVID-19, this is a way to bring our gardens’ spring beauty to your home virtually,” Swed said. “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.”
DBG will continue to share the gardens virtually, with images and videos on social media and on the website.
Brian Trader, DBG 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.”
