With THREE convenient locations, an experienced and friendly staff, and radical free rewards program, Botany Bay is “THE place to buy things to do stuff with”!

Meet our Benevolent Dictator

 Ginny Saville AKA “Our Benevolent Dictator” was transplanted to the hills of Eastern KY at age 14. After graduating high school in 1987 she put herself through college graduating with a Bachelor in Accounting. In 1996 she saw an ad in the Richmond paper to sell hemp stuff as a home-based business. Seeing as there wasn’t a place to buy hemp products (and other cool things to do stuff with) she decided to fill that void. Working out of the trunk of her car she pulled up to festivals, homes, wherever she could, educating and selling hemp products with a smile.

The Dictator is notorious for her love of travel, and her 25 years and counting in the industry has allowed her to make many lasting friendships in the business and cannabis world as well as her local community. She's created some good and fun jobs for people here and we only expect to keep that number growing! Ginny has participated in efforts to change public policy around a number of issues but most specifically cannabis, and we also expect to continue to have more freedom in the years to come!
