The historic Grotto Gardens at the Dayton VA Medical Center is front and center in a new national exhibit at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington D.C. from January 31 through October 15, 2019. The exhibit, Celebrating New American Gardens, showcases 21 gardens from across the United States that have created new gardens, or renovated a garden within the last five years. The exhibit will feature photos, drawings, landscape designs, and project descriptions to share the story of each garden.
“We were thrilled that others will be able to appreciate the story of this Veteran created garden. Community collaboration has been key in restoring this beautiful garden to a place of tranquil healing. The U.S. Botanic Garden is a world-renowned museum and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of their new exhibit,” said Jill Dietrich, Director of the Dayton VA Medical Center.
