There is so much to take in at the UNF Botanical Garden! Discover the beauty of the garden and natural lands blooming with opportunities for exploration and growth with a virtual tour lead by horticulturist Rhonda Gracie. This immersive experience at the Garden Club of Jacksonville will tantalize your senses and is one you won’t want to miss.

Rhonda Gracie graduated from Florida International University with a bachelor’s degree in architectural studies. She also has a degree in parks and recreation maintenance management from North Carolina State University. She is the former landscape architect for the cities of Clearwater and Miami Beach, where she has won many awards for notable projects and sustainability efforts. Since 2013, she has been the horticulturist at the University of North Florida, where she and her department are responsible for the management of more than 1,600 acres. She serves on many professional boards and committees and has focused on transforming the campus into a Botanical Garden. Gracie has helped with the implementation of 10 Florida-friendly gold-level certified gardens, UNF’s Bee Campus USA designation, and 26 transformational educational garden exhibits. She has won 12 awards and certifications, including UNF Duval County School Employer Partner of the Year and the 2022 recipient of the Florida Nursery, Growers, and Landscape Association (FNGLA) Outstanding Educator of the Year Award.

The program is free and open to the public, but registration is required so the Garden Club knows how many chairs to provide. We appreciate your help!
