Here at Riverview Gardens & gifts, we believe in loving nature and loving home. We aspire to enrich our community and beyond through educating the public about the wonders of plants and the joys of home.
We stock an eclectic variety of indoor and outdoor flora. Situated on an 18 acre nursery, we are able to offer hundreds of varieties of trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials and houseplants.
Our goal is to provide our customers with unique options in the plant world, while making sure to carry many favorite plants staples.
Our Educational Programs
Today it seems like everyone is growing their own gardens and filling their homes with houseplants. But not-so-long-ago, the Riverview staff was starting to get worried that general knowledge about plants seemed to be in decline.
We decided, as stewards of the land, that part of our mission would be to provide education in basic horticulture to the public. That’s why in 2010 we launched our year-round workshop and events program.
Today we have a robust schedule of events for both adult learners and children. We hope to foster a love and curiosity for the natural world for generations to come. Join us for our next event!
Our Charitable Contributions
We believe that with success comes a responsibility to give back. Riverview has been volunteering with the Restoring Hope Foundation since its first build in 2011. Our President, Diane Salks has sat on the board of directors since 2012.
Riverview also hosts an annual event called Women Helping Women the Sunday before Thanksgiving. This event raises money for local charities and helps other women-owned businesses come together to support one another. Additionally, many of our public events are designed as fundraisers to local charities. Learn about the Restoring Hope Foundation.
We love to delight our customers. That’s why Riverview’s buyers constantly seek out new and unusual products for the individual and the home. We believe our unique variety of products can be seen in our collections or by visiting our retail location.
