Virtual Tour Stop #2
This area is known as the sensory garden. This area is filled with plants that appeal to our sense of touch and smell. Please look around for our garden placards that give more information on each plant.
These plants can be found in the Sensory Garden:
EarthLinks was founded in 1996 by two nuns, Bette Ann Jaster, OP, and Cathy Mueller, SL, who noted profound fragmentation and deep hunger for connection and belonging in society. This cry came from diverse people in many different circumstances but was most pronounced among people who were homeless and low-income in the inner city. People who are experiencing homelessness are often isolated from others and alienated from the natural world, and connection to others and nature is healing. All of us, regardless of our status, can care for our mutual home, Earth. This was the motivation for beginning EarthLinks.
