Recently I visited the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden with my granddaughter Eva Grace, after filming a TV show for Project Volunteer. To say that the garden is impressive in its growth and beauty is an understatement. There is beauty everywhere you look when you walk through this magnificent gem of a garden located right here in our community. The Garden more than impressed my granddaughter as she took in the sights and smells of the different themed gardens and looked up at the big basket, smart flower, children’s playhouse, and so much more!
I have known the founders and Director of the Garden Susie and Bill Tyler for many years. Time Warner used to film my exercise show, Shape Up, in the Garden years ago and it was beautiful then, but now, even more magnificent! Susie recently turned over her position as Director of the Garden since its beginning stages to Laurna Strehl.
Laurna is so passionate about bringing awareness to the WKBG and wants to share with everyone how the land was turned into a beautiful environment that helps foster an awareness and encourages interaction with nature. She has big plans for the Garden!
