Southern Virginia Botanical Gardens

SVBG was created out of interest arising within the Southside Virginia Master  Gardeners organization to create demonstration gardens for the region and to  educate citizens about gardening as a lifestyle.

The SVBG Board  of Directors is working with Master Gardeners, horticultural and forest  professionals as well as landscape architects and designers to develop plans for  the development of the sites and very much wants this to be a community and  regional project. "We are attempting this out of a desire to leave the region of  Virginia we love with a lasting legacy."

The Arboretum is a large area  of the Garden devoted to the collection and preservation of trees and shrubs  that are native to our region as well as specimens of other suitable landscape  trees and shrubs.

The New Virginia Victory Garden is intended to show the "best of the best"  varieties of vegetables, fruits, and berries for our region.

We have created a beautiful venue for weddings and concerts on the  "Front Lawn" of our garden. A pergola covered with flowering vines and roses is  the exchange of vows site.

The Medicine Wheel Herb Garden began  construction in September 2012.
