Entering The Gardens you cannot help but be amazed by their vast beauty. There is so much history, culture, and imagination; from the huge Oak tree sweeping the grounds, to the Tuscan inspired reflecting pools, to the English Garden. With a cup of tea from Tree Cup Café, the Gardens are not to be missed!
I recommend next time you are in the Gardens to take a moment to listen to the stillness of the Gardens. What peace. It is almost whimsical to be present among so much natural beauty. Coming in March, I look forward to combining two of my favorite things: Yoga & The Gardens! I have the privilege of guiding a gentle yoga class March 23rd, 29th & 30th during Garden Month! What a gift it will be to help guide others to be present in the moment in the Gardens, while moving our breath and bodies in a healing way. What a perfectly complementary pair!
The Garden is one of the big factors that inspired me to be involved with The Cummer Museum. I am on the Board of the The Up & Cummers, a young professionals group at the Museum, and serve as the Chair for the Special Events Committee!
Garden Month at The Cummer will be packed with different activities, from a rainbarel sale by the wonderfully proactive St. Johns Riverkeeper, to a Farm to Table dinner. The Gardens are being fully utilized this March so be sure not to miss out!
