Nurture Your Roots

The Garden welcomes you to make space for your health and wellbeing with our Nurture Your Roots program. Our various rooting stations are designed intentionally to help you cultivate a better day for yourself and flourish in your everyday life. Head to one of our rooting stations to scan a QR code for zone-specific music, join us for pilates in the garden, or enjoy a guided meditation as you stroll through nature. These are just a few options we offer as part of our Nurture Your Roots program. Embrace the tranquility of nature as you explore these rooting stations and witness as you grow healthier habits for yourself. Download a printable map
