The Gadsden Public Library is a center of learning, reflection, and peace. The mission of their Sacred Place, the Sensory Garden, is no different. Inspiration for the garden developed from the desire for children to utilize all of their senses in the process of learning, and to have a place to both grow and heal as well. The garden is a haven for the Gadsden community to grow emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and creatively.
The Sensory Garden is an interactive space which allows for healing and thought through the enjoyment of herbs, tending to plants, and simply strengthening oneself. By healing visitors from the inside out, real lasting change can take hold.
