From Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden:

For the safety of all during COVID-19, the Garden is using an online, timed ticketing system where you can choose the time you will arrive. Garden members must reserve their free member tickets through this system. Children under age 3 do not need a ticket. All tickets are online only; no walk-ups.

IMPORTANT: On your first visit to our new online ticketing system, you will be prompted to create an account with your email address, a password and contact information. Members, you do not use your membership account to purchase tickets; ticketing and membership are two separate systems.

Once you have a ticketing account, you will be able to sign in with your username and password to purchase tickets.

Tickets are non-refundable and Garden member tickets are non-transferable. The Garden is open rain or shine and only closed for severe inclement weather. Any weather-related closings are posted to lewisginter.org or social media.

Members, you can buy the same number of tickets as corresponds to your membership type. For example, an individual member can buy one ticket. A dual member can buy two. A family member can buy 2 adults and up to 6 kids tickets. Friends members can buy up to 4 adult and 8 kids tickets.

Not a member yet? It may be your best deal; learn more about member benefits.

The neighborhood social media outlets have been a battleground of accusations, hurt feelings, whining, and sympathetic support when it comes to the South of the James Farmers Market move to Bryan Park.

GrowRVA posted yesterday hoping to clarify their plans. Will this put out the hair-rending and weekly question of “is the market coming back”? All signs point to no.

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”☂️

Grow RVA has been weathering COVID-19 and working with Richmond VA Parks and RecreationKristen N. LarsonRMC Events and the RPD to offer the safest set up and practices in order to serve the RVA community. South of the James Farmers Market will remain in Bryan Park through the winter, as we are not sure how the virus will
continue to operate. ❤️

Grow RVA will return home to Forest Hill Park in May 2021. Until then, join us for a Summer Brunch Market in late August. More information will be posted as it is available. ❤️

And Bryan Park, big things to come Summer 2021!❤️

Thank you for your support as we navigate this current complicated situation! Good vibes go a long way!

Stay safe and shop local!❤️
