"Moreover, in this time of vast uncertainties, trees and shrubs are a relatively stable commodity; and the garden itself has a clear, bounden role to provide a retreat from the world, from the many and various sensory offenses inflicted upon all of us as concommitants of modern living."  Robert and Elizabeth Munger, 1977.



Boxerwood is a Nature Center and Woodland Garden located just outside Lexington, Virginia dedicated to educating and inspiring people of all ages to become successful stewards of the Earth.
