The Walmart Foundation recently provided a $2,000 grant to Chandor Gardens Foundation to assist with the foundation’s goal to construct an Arts and Culture Center and other buildings on the 13.5 acres adjacent to the existing gardens. The Walmart Foundation supports and invests in community organizations that seek diversity, equity and inclusion. This grant will help further chandor’s vision to introduce fine arts, gardening, and other enlightening experiences to young and old.

The garden has received state, national and international recognition, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is open daily to the public for a nominal fee. Additional information is available at
