A note from our sponsor: 

“Challenging” only begins to describe the events of the past year and a half. The resolve of our community has been tested in profound ways, yet, as an essential health care worker, you’ve shown up to selflessly serve your fellow Iowans time and time again. This weekend serves as just a small token of our collective appreciation for all you’ve done and continue to do. We truly hope you — surrounded by family, friends, and the beauty of the gardens — can take some well-deserved time to prioritize on your own health and happiness.  

Wellmark thanks you for your service and is honored to sponsor Essentials Workers Weekend at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden.
