 A Patron’s Story


NBG Board Members
We upgraded our basic family membership to become a Garden Patron donor at the Camellia level this year because Garden Patrons Kevin and Renee Wamplerwe discovered the wealth of things to do at the Garden and we love being able to tell our family, friends and others in the community what a great place this is to visit! We attend our son’s regattas on Lake Whitehurst, we love being able to see the gardens changing throughout the year with all the different flowers and enjoy our guided Greenhouse Tour to learn more about the production of the Garden’s plants.

 Norfolk Botanical Garden is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
