The Peace Garden
St Mary’s Peace Garden, behind the south wall of the churchyard and next to the Pavilion, has been created within the past few years as a Community Garden, a joint project with Linton Parish Council and members of our local community. It has now been registered with The Quiet Garden Movement, which nurtures low cost, accessible, outdoor space for prayer, contemplation, rest and inspiration. Begun in 1992, there are now over 300 gardens worldwide, in a variety of settings including private homes, churches, hospitals and schools. The list of gardens is found at www.quietgarden.org/find-gardens
The Peace Garden is already a well-used and treasured space within our own village community, and now, as part of The Quiet Garden Movement, we can look forward to sharing it with visitors from further afield.
