Churches & Nursing Homes

Any church in the north central Iowa area is welcome to schedule one service annually at no charge.  The pristine beauty of the Gardens is a perfect setting for contemplative thought and a meaningful worship experience.  Please contact us to reserve a date and click here to read the guidelines we have established for your use, and the support we can offer to your congregation.

We also welcome nursing homes to bring their residents for a tour of the Gardens or to just casually walk around and enjoy our beautiful grounds, again, at no charge.  All our paths are accessible, and when you let us know in advance, we’ll do our best to have some volunteers ready to assist with any mobility needs.  Because our Mother Earth Workshop (MEWS) is now newly accessible due to the addition of new pavers, residents who want to putter a bit in the workshop or help us with some gentle aspects of gardening are more than welcome to do so.  Please contact us to schedule your group.
