It’s Time You Knew! A Note From Carmen Boy



It’s officially spring! If you’re wondering what could be better than the advent of sunshine and time outdoors…I can tell you: you are! 

Your support throughout these last two years has allowed the Conservatory to become a vital beacon of hope and healing for the Columbus community—for hundreds of thousands of neighbors, visitors from afar, and hopefully for your family, as well. Thank you!

Do you know how many moments of deep satisfaction you’ve created for a guest immersed in the lush greenery of the Pacific Island Water Garden Biome? How many life skills you’ve passed on to community gardeners through our education programs? Did you know little Emily learned the color “red” from all the rainbow motifs in our Children’s Garden?

It’s time you knew! We look forward to sharing these stories of impact with you in our new quarterly Conservatory Cultivators newsletter and blog. In the inaugural issue: we share a brief story of the recent pandemic journey you’ve helped us weather, announce a new grant-funded partnership with Head Start, share spring gardening tips and more. I hope you enjoy this content and I thank you for bringing us a warmer, more beautiful 2022 through your generosity.

Best regards,

Carmen K. Boy

Vice President of Philanthropy
