Behind the Scenes Preview at Delaware Botanic Gardens

For immediate release April 14, 2018

There is a rare opportunity for people who love nature and gardening to have a Behind the Scenes preview at the Delaware Botanic Gardens (DBG) in Dagsboro on May 4.  Bear in mind that the gardens are being built from scratch by Delmarva professionals and volunteers.  As Ray Sander, President of DBG, states “not many people have ever seen the birth of a botanic garden in the first stage of development.”  In fact, over 50 local and visiting volunteers will have just added 30,000 plants to the Meadow Garden.  Be among the first to see this garden.

The centerpiece of this event is a chance to meet Piet Oudolf, the internationally renowned Dutch garden designer, who will be walking the Meadow path and discussing his iconic design.

Dogfish Head Brewery is the sponsor of this DBG fundraising event, so you can “Sip and Saunter” through the Meadow Garden.  Sander believes, “this is truly a rare behind the scenes preview of what will become a wonderful experience for both locals and visitors”.
