Beginning May 13, Norfolk Botanical Garden (NBG) will be featured on a United States Postage Forever stamp as part of the upcoming “American Gardens” series. The image from the NBG features the beautiful Bicentennial Rose Garden.
“The honor of being on a United States Postage Stamp is reserved for distinguished Americans who have left us or for notable American Institutions,“ said said Michael P. Desplaines, NBG President & CEO. “Today I’m proud that Norfolk Botanical Garden is being recognized as one of those notable American institutions. We’re so pleased to be a part of this historic moment when Gardens around the nation are being honored in such a prestigious way.
Local residents can purchase the stamps from any post office station or online via the USPS Postal Store at https://go.usa.gov/xvyqr
“Thank you, USPS, and thank you America for your love affair with Gardens,” said Desplaines.
Norfolk Botanical Garden is a great way to exercise in a relaxed, enchanting environment while social distancing. Family passes allowing up to six people at a time are a great deal at $100 annually for unlimited relaxation.
