Amazing Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church and The McElderry Park Community joined together to create Amazing Port Street, a project on a mission to build community and nurture life through creating a Sacred Community Commons for Healing and Peace in the heart of the community. The space includes community gardens, gardening education and activities, youth art, a perennial nursery and a permanent outdoor labyrinth. Facing the sacred space is Amazing Grace Church’s back wall in which a colorful mural has been created by community members and a local artist.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
