Our gardens try to model a style of agriculture in harmony with the land, one that is sustainable for the environment and sustaining for the humans involved.
Education and care for the earth is at the core of all we do.
Peace, insight, comfort, healing, energy, connection, and letting go are words often used to describe a walk in the labyrinth. Walking this circular path provides a time of quiet and meditation and reminds us of our life journey with its twists and turns. A single half-mile path leads to the center where the same path is followed back out. Additionally, we have a smaller outdoor labyrinth located between our barn and garden.
Walk the 13 reflective stations on the trail. Each station offers something for the mind, body, and spirit. A sign can be found at each station with theme-centered factual information, reflections, and suggested activities. We are grateful to the Capitol Square Rotary which provided funding, labor, and assistance with the stations and to students from Upper Arlington High School who helped plan each site.
