    Betty Kuhnel Heather Garden

About the Garden

Heathers, even though they are not native, are amazingly well-adapted to our climate.  They have few pests, few foragers, and low fertilizer and water needs once established.  They like a little pruning and, once in a while, a shot of fertilizer and compost.  They are low key plants.  And they give you something different to look at all year long.  They are long lived.  -Maria Krenek

  • Although first and foremost a work of art, the sculpture is interactive and may be utilized as a walking labyrinth. You are invited to take your shoes off and enjoy a tactile and meditative experience following All Happy Now’s spiral labyrinth-ziggurat up to its center.
