Thank you to all who joined us for our
2022 Mary Garden Contest
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!
Returning in 2023!
