At the Delaware Nature Society's (DNS) inspirational Ashland Nature Center, more than 60 garden enthusiasts and horticultural thought leaders gathered on March 30 for the first public presentation of the Delaware Botanic Gardens' (DBG) Master Plan.
This Master Plan is the result of a twelve-month iterative process led by Rodney Robinson and Allan Summers of RAS Landscape Architects. Carla Markel, Delaware's former first lady and chair of the garden’s advisory council, in her opening remarks recognized the leadership of the DBG Board and all the firms and individuals who are working to bring a new public garden to the region and the State. Rodney Robinson and Allan Summers unveiled the Master Plan and reviewed the design process, the details and multifaceted features of the garden's creative and beautifully crafted Master Plan.
The event's success was due to the great cooperation of the region's leading Horticulture organizations, the Delaware Nature Society, the Delaware Center for Horticulture and the Garden Club of Wilmington. DBG looks forward to other cooperative events with these organizations.
