The gardens are open to the public (dogs are welcome too) and there is much to explore! Highlights include a bell tower, herb garden featuring culinary, dye, and medicinal herbs, ground cover garden, native plant garden, a greenhouse, wetland garden and healing garden complete with a labryinth and rain garden. The wetland garden features sustainable elements including recycled-glass pavers, biological filtration of campus storm water runoff, a solar fountain and native plant communities.
