Flowing from the Laudato Si’ Action Platform and grounded in Catholic Tradition and in biblical teaching, gardens are both spiritual and tangible expressions of our desire to join with nature and God. Creating gardens is an act of atonement that can heal our past sins of overconsumption, environmental injustice and racism, and can bring us closer to the vision of integral ecology in Laudato Si’.
We strive to create and renew green spaces that:
- Create space for prayer, wonder and celebration of Creation, bringing people together to express our love for God and our neighbors
- Enhance local biodiversity with native plants and pollinator gardens to promote integral ecology
- Grow food gardens to provide fresh produce for those in need, connect people to their culture and root them in community
