Sacred Space and Monarch/Pollinator Garden

The labyrinth in the northwest corner of our property was dedicated in 2004 and is currently undergoing a major upgrade. It provides a shaded, meditative spot for walking, as well as memorial benches. It is being totally renovated in spring 2019 to provide a sturdier, more attractive surface and lower maintenance.

Next to the labyrinth, the monarch pollinator garden is a joint project of the church’s earth care committee, the adjacent state historic park and the Valley of the Moon garden club.

Together, they create a small oasis where people can meditate and enjoy nature.
