“2020 Best American Botanical Gardens”

GIBBS GARDENS added a new honor to its growing list of awards. The GARDENS have been selected for the “2020 BEST AMERICAN BOTANICAL GARDENS” list.


“Being named to the list of the 13 BEST AMERICAN BOTANICAL GARDENS is another dream come true,” said Jim Gibbs. “Opening GIBBS GARDENS to the public in 2012 was my life-long dream and to now be recognized among the other great AMERICAN BOTANICAL GARDENS is a rewarding and thrilling experience.”


An Award-Winning Tradition
GIBBS recently received the 2020 Award of Excellence—the highest national award presented by the Garden Clubs of America—for his achievement in the design and development of GIBBS GARDENS. He also received the 2020 Merit Award presented by the Garden Clubs of Georgia.
