Master Gardener Jennifer Knutson will present “The Biblically Inspired Garden” at noon Tuesday, Dec. 8, online via Zoom through the Brainerd Public Library.

Gardens are often thought of as spiritual places that nourish our hearts and souls. Creating an area in a garden for prayer, mediation or as a memorial to a loved one or beloved pet is a way to provide a peaceful place for contemplation and reflection. Elements of a prayer or meditation garden will be presented for a biblically inspired garden, including plants with heavenly names.
