"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, that is dedicated to educating and inspiring people of all ages to become successful stewards of the Earth.


Fifteen acres feature both native and unusual plant specimens from wetlands to forests to fields. Award Winning Education programs  take place on site or at local schools and along local rivers. Families and the community enjoy periodic special events. The garden is open every day of the week during daylight hours. Visiting the garden is free, but we welcome donations and memberships.
