The seed that sprouted to become Huntsville Botanical Garden was sown by volunteers 25 years ago. Fourteen founders, who had a vision for a world-class garden, are responsible for the first chapter in a story that is continually written each and every day. In celebration of the Garden’s 25th anniversary and the spirit of volunteerism, this special area was developed to honor the Garden’s volunteers.
The Volunteer Tribute Garden features flowers and plants chosen specifically to honor the volunteer spirit, and brick pathways extending from either side of the plaza recognize just some of the Garden’s loyal volunteers of the past and present. A stone seating area gives visitors an opportunity to rest and reflect within the garden.
