The Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens was excited to welcome our dedicated Japanese Garden volunteers back to Birmingham Botanical Gardens earlier this month in preparation for the Gardens’ reopening on Monday, June 15. This hardworking team of 10–12 volunteers resumed their Tuesday morning volunteer schedule and wasted no time diving into tasks such as weeding, sweeping, and pruning the 7.5-acre garden that, for them and many others, embodies the promise of continual renewal.

The Chicago Botanic Garden is happy to be welcoming visitors soon!

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is now open! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Greetings from the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids. We hope everyone remains healthy as we all work towards providing a place of solace and light for those returning from isolation during this pandemic and quarantine.

The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco looks forward to welcoming visitors back in the near future! Our team is working hard to maintain the garden’s beauty.

Greetings from Seattle! We are happy to say the garden has remained open almost every day this year as a place for calm and respite. Hope for health and well-being for all!. –Kubota Garden Foundation and Seattle Parks and Recreation

Despite the fact that the gardener’s team came back six weeks later to start the season we are getting ready to open the garden to the public Monday June the 15th. Usually spring time attracts a lot of visitors. It was very strange to be alone in the garden. So quiet, peaceful, nature had regain its territory. More than ever I felt that there is beauty in silence and emptiness. – Montreal Botanical Garden

The Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden is thrilled to be welcoming visitors back to the garden beginning June 28th

The Yume Japanese Gardens of Tucson looks forward to welcoming visitors in the future! In the meantime, our volunteer team is working hard to maintain the garden’s beauty.
