Botanica getting more beautiful, worldly

Congratulations to Botanica for its new Chinese Garden of Friendship, the $2 million project dedicated Friday. The first garden built in living tribute to one of Wichita’s sister cities, Kaifeng, China, it won’t be the last. Botanica director Marty Miller says gardens celebrating Wichita’s sister cities in France and Mexico are in the works. Dedication events continue through Friday for the Chinese garden, which is only the latest reason to visit and support the beautiful community asset that is Botanica. – Rhonda Holman
