Waterfront Botanical Gardens: GARDEN SPRUCE UP. Help spruce up the Waterfront Botanical Gardens by planting plants and placing mulch in gardens. Bring your own gloves and wear closed-toe shoes. (They will provide shovels, rakes, silage forks, wheelbarrows, etc.)

PROJECT LOCATION:
1435 Frankfort Ave, Louisville, KY 40206

The Waterfront Botanical Gardens was started by Botanica, an umbrella organization for the local gardening community that was started in 1993 to help enlighten, entertain, and educate the community about the botanical world. In 2001, Botanica learned that it was the beneficiary of a trust established by member Helen Harrigan, a local gardener with a desire to see a botanical garden and conservatory built in Louisville. Helen’s gift reshaped the focus of our organization, and we set about our work to create what will become Louisville’s Waterfront Botanical Gardens.
