A Mary Garden is a sacred space for spiritual reflection. They usually contain plantings and flowers that are symbolic of The Virgin Mary and often there is a statue of Mary present. Mary Gardens began as early as the 17th Century. However, the tradition was revived during the 1950’s in the United States by a man named John S. Stokes, Jr. Grunder Landscaping Company and University of Dayton partnered to create a spectacular Mary’s Garden Exhibit inside Roesch Library on the U.D. Campus. For more information, click here.
