Happy New Year from the Garden

We are excited to bring in the new year with our new Executive Director Michael D. Allen. Mike joins the Memphis Botanic Garden having spent the past six years as President and CEO of Catholic Charities of West Tennessee. His leadership and experience will be an asset to the Garden, and we look forward to an amazing year. Mike says, “I am thrilled to join the experienced team of professionals and Board members at the Memphis Botanic Garden and I look forward to exploring each and every one of its 29 specialty gardens with them. I have had a lot of offices throughout my career, but never one that was 96 acres big! The opportunity to make more Mid-Southerners of all ages aware of the beautiful grounds and facilities is what has drawn me most. The Garden has much to offer our community, and I am excited to be a part of it.” We echo his enthusiasm, so come by and help us welcome him to our Garden!
