An Ecological Ministry
Shepherd’s Corner, founded in 1992, is an ecological ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Peace. This 160-acre natural oasis serves as a center for ecology, spirituality, and education. The property’s diverse range of habitats offers a haven for wildlife and native flora, plus a place of peace, natural beauty, and spiritual refreshment. Our strategic plan focuses on three areas: environmental education, reflection on care of creation, and providing healthy, naturally grown produce.
At Shepherd’s Corner, you’ll find chemical-free naturally grown gardens, chickens, sheep, a llama, a turf labyrinth, greenhouses, and meditation trails. Shepherd’s Corner welcomes many volunteers and hosts public programs as well as programs for adults or student groups. As a non-profit organization, Shepherd’s Corner relies on donations to operate.
Please note that Shepherd’s Corner is private property and is not a public park. If you wish to use the trails or other facilities, please call to make arrangements.
Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center is positioning itself to be an Earth-centered leader in the Central Ohio community: teaching environmental education, offering reflective experiences on care of creation, and renewing the land while providing healthy, naturally grown produce.
