Review for Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens Inc, Boothbay, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am continuously amazed at the new things I find at CMBG. It is an absolute jewel. The staff genuinely want every visitor to have a more-than-I-ever-expected experience and more often than not, they succeed. This is just a truly wonderful place. The plants, the trails, the gardens, the events, the facilities and the food, as well as the staff, are all exceptional.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seminars, programs and volunteering

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

force myself not to.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

giving people with limited mobility the chance to see these wonderful gardens and grounds.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, cheerful and knowledgeable

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help save the world by increasing their education and research activities, increasing their opportunities for people with disabilities, more arts awareness and increased joy for every visitor

Ways to make it better...

I could spend more time there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

going to be keeping up with the standard they have established as the number of visitors increases

One thing I'd also say is that...

I've spoken to many visitors as they conclude their visit and not one has ever expressed disappointemnt. Many just say they have been blown away by the visit. It is amazing to me that everybody always seems so happy and appreciative to be there.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
