Botanical Gardens Director Speaks to the Power of Growth

For 50 years, the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens has been a living classroom for students and a horticultural and botanical asset for the campus and greater community. Botanical Gardens Director Jeff Gillman describes how support through Exponential will sustain the future of the gardens, including its educational curriculum and ongoing research. Plans call for building a new welcome center that will serve as a gateway to the green heart of UNC Charlotte’s campus. This sustainable facility will draw students,faculty, staff and the public to an open and inviting teaching facility, working greenhouse and surrounding plaza, all designed to serve generations to come.
