Gardening is a wonderful activity to do as a family, teaching important life skills such as patience and responsibility. We want to encourage families to pray together, wherever they are – so why not try a garden dedicated to Our Lady?

The tradition of Mary Gardens began with medieval Christians who prayed to Our Lady to keep their gardens rich and fertile. For this reason, many flowers, herbs, and fruit became associated with Our Lady. Mary is still an important figure in the hearts of Christians today. She brought hope, joy and beauty into the world and a Mary Garden is a wonderful way to honor her.

We created this contest in 2019 at the start of the pandemic. We hoped it would offer families a fun, prayerful activity they could do at home. Now, a few years later, we are honored that this contest has become an annual Museum tradition!

We will see you all again in May 2023!
