Other new USBG projects include the building of an Environmental Learning Center, which will provide a state-of-the-art teaching space for public outreach; and a Showcase Garden featuring plants native to the mid-Atlantic region. There is also an area slated for contemplation, to provide stressed-out visitors a serene environment to connect with nature. "We want to inspire people to realize the diversity of plants and how important they are to our culture," explains Holly. "It's an exciting time to be at the Garden."
