Herb & Sensory Garden

The Stan Beikmann Herb and Sensory Garden was designed to engage visitors' senses and inform them about the many uses of herbs, present and past. More than 200 kinds of herbs are displayed in an adapted English design. Occupying the center of the garden is a stone dovecote, a traditional garden structure. The various beds feature plants used for seasonings, spices, teas, dyecloth, insect repellents and much more. This garden also includes a sensory trail with beds that appeal to our senses of smell, taste, sight, touch, and sound.
