Join Dr. Martha M. Williams as she unearths the secrets of Norfolk Botanical Garden’s history and its African American roots.
Learn about the women who offered blood, sweat and tears to build a lasting regional treasure trove of flora. Some of the azaleas they planted remain today as an heirloom commemorating their efforts. Remember those who cleared the way for this award-winning horticultural venue. This once exclusive land is now open to people from all walks of life. Let’s bloom and grow together.
