The “Zen “Garden” is just one of the highlights visitors will find when they come to the Manor.

It is a special place, designed to foster relaxation and reflection.  Its evolution over the years has come from the efforts of past and present community members.  One of the ongoing efforts is to collect moss from some very unexpected places.

The Manor is lucky to have built partnerships across the region to help in its mission.

Recently one of those partners hosted a moss gathering party from their workshop roof!  The guys had fun climbing, collecting, and replanting the moss.  With some tender love and care, it will take hold and create even more beauty in what has become a sacred space for all to use.
