Contemplative Garden

Contemplative Garden Project

Help us make a difference.

  • This project will provide the opportunity to expand current programming. Garden to Table programming will be added, learning sessions will include teachable moments from preparation to enjoying the produce.

  • Minimal pesticides will be used.

  • The ability to use food waste through composting will assist in the reduction of waste to the landfill.

  • Volunteers will be engaged throughout this project. A UofL Masters student has been approved for Applied Studies credit to work on this project. Expertise in Urban Planning and horticulture will be beneficial in the development of the planning stages of this Project.

  • Martha Retreat Centre is in a transitional stage in its history. Martha Retreat Centre Society was established in 2018, receiving charitable status in 2020. The goal is to become a sustainable Centre that meets growing and diverse needs of people in our community.

  • Collaborations and additional funding sources are in developmental stages. A contemplative garden is one of the innovative ways to increase the capacity of the Centre in our service to community members.

I would like to donate towards following fund:
