Garden angels, Lynn and Bill Cromer, are hoping to find a few new angels to help with the Museum’s History Garden. Bill is a retired banker and Lynn is a retired teacher who has volunteered at the Museum in many other capacities. They moved to beautiful Fernandina Beach full-time nine years ago and they have volunteered in the garden as a team for about two years.

The garden features native historic plants such as Sea Island cotton, sugar cane, and coral vine from Cumberland Island. There is also an area of prehistoric plants and a newly added butterfly/hummingbird garden. As much as Lynn and Bill love getting sweaty and dirty fingernails, they could use a little help. It is a very fulfilling endeavor that is very much appreciated by the museum staff, who use it for Victorian teas and other events, and by the viewing public.
