We Are Growing!

Erin Grajek

A message from Dave Swarts, President/CEO...

2016 has been a record breaking year in so many ways.  The growth and successes we continue to experience would not happen without the incredible support we receive from our 3,500 loyal members, 250 volunteers, a dedicated staff and thousands of financial contributors. Together, our efforts are making a difference.  Thank You!

Lumagination began in January with a kickoff cocktail party that attracted a record breaking crowd of over 300 guests.  Attendees were treated to a preview of Lumagination while sipping exotic cocktails and enjoying tasty appetizers.  Eleven thousand visitors, another record breaker, experienced Lumagination over the 20 night exhibit.

The Spring Flower Exhibit featured thousands of fragrant and colorful spring flowers in very creative displays.  The horticulture staff and volunteers did a wonderful job with the displays. The spring exhibit attracted over 15,000 visitors. Also, the annual Easter Egg Hunt was another sellout with 300 kids participating in the event.

The Great Plant Sale in May will offer members and the public opportunities to purchase unique annuals, perennials and shrubs to brighten up their gardens and homes.  The pre-order generated a record number of orders and generated extra revenue for the Gardens.  

Construction Update - Erie County’s project to reconstruct greenhouses 2 and 3 should be finished this summer.  When done, the Botanical Gardens Society will be presented with two empty greenhouses.  It becomes the Society’s responsibility to raise the funds to rebuild the exhibits. The cost to rebuild the exhibits is estimated to be $350,000.  
Our staff has been working diligently to raise the funds needed to rebuild the
exhibits, which we hope to open to the public later this year.

The new exhibits will retain the popular Koi Pond and beautiful waterfall.  It will also include a new water feature, a redesigned bridge over the pond, a Moon Gate, a living wall, and new pathways displaying exotic plantings that will enhance the exhibit’s aquatic and Asiatic themes.  We are very excited about this project and look forward to reopening the new exhibits.

We also have many wonderful events planned this summer, including Starry Night in the Garden on June 22.  Tickets can be purchased at www.mystar1025.com.  Also, for the third year, we are hosting Botanics and Brews on July 21.  It’s a fun night - great beer tastings, food and music.  Check out our website for more details.

Thank you for supporting the Botanical Gardens, and we hope to see this summer.

Dave Swarts, President/CEO

  • My boyfriend left me for another girl for some silly reasons. He keeps telling me that I am nothing to him. He said he wants to be with the other girl. that he has no feeling for me anymore. This started more than one month ago. By this time he also speaks to me but not in his own mood or to rebuild our relationship. He does so because I request him to be with me at least for some hours or some minute… we talk only once …but I can’t stay without him. I want him back.. I was really worried and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Lord Zuma can help get ex lover back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do, and I did it then he did a Love spell for me. Some hours later, my boyfriend really called me and told me that he misses me so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me when he left. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, All thanks to Lord Zuma. he is so powerful and I decided to share my happiness on the internet that Lord Zuma is real. if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast. Do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma now. Here’s his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him: +1 506 800 1647

  • Hi, did you know there are spells to win love back from an ex. I have done it. I love reading about relationships and how to make them work, how to better the relationship, and how to keep the spark alive, even how to talk to them a certain way to get them to think a different way about the situation and you. If you need advice or want to win your ex back, try DR EMU copy and message on the following ( Email: emutemple@gmail.com ) or ( WhatsApp: +2347012841542 ) It will change your mentality and get you what you want.
