Guest Post: Roots committee member

Christina is a committee member for the Roots, a membership level for young professionals focused on providing rich horticultural and social experiences.

For me, coming to the Memphis Botanic Garden gives me a “get away from it all” escape without having to leave the city! Every event I attended in the past gave me a much-needed chance to slow down and RELAX. Wanting to share this feeling of serenity with my family, friends and patients was the main reason I agreed to help form the Roots committee. 

The Food Truck Garden Parties this past summer and fall were a blast and exactly the type of events I enjoy so much. Young professionals and families were able to take a break from their hectic schedules surrounded by the beauty of the Garden while enjoying great food and live music. I think everyone (including me!) enjoyed the campfires and roasting marshmallows for s'mores!


As we move into the holidays, I am especially looking forward to the Naughty or Nice Party on December 6th. The light and snow display at Snowy Nights is the perfect backdrop for a great date night or out with friends. Plus, you can't beat pictures with Santa and all the s'mores you can make! Hope to see you all there!
