Course Description

Create a garden space that offers rest and renewal. In this class, we’ll identify visual cues that create places that nurture the spirit and invite us to take a meditative stroll, to sit and relax with a cup of tea, to read and reflect, to stretch, to meditate or to write. Draw inspiration from different meditative elements and examples of historic and monastic gardens to find the meditative garden styles that work for you, translate those elements into a working design, and discuss sustainable gardening principles that will create gardens that nurture the spirit and the environment.
