Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s mission is education and our passion is connecting people and plants to improve communities. Our goal is to extend beyond traditional boundaries to have a positive impact and to enrich lives.

LGBG is on property that was Powhatan Indian hunting ground and was once owned by Patrick Henry. Lewis Ginter, a prosperous Richmond businessman, purchased nine acres in 1895.
