Mary Gardens for Mother’s Day: A DIY Windowsill Display
06:00 PM - 07:00 PM

NOTE: Time listed in ET

May is the month of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Mother's Day. Join Marian Library archivist Kayla Harris and library specialist Melanie Fields '18 to grow your knowledge of the many flowers and plants named as symbols of the Blessed Virgin.

Harris and Fields will explain the history of the Mary gardens movement through the collection of the founder, John S. Stokes Jr. They will show images of dish gardens featuring different types of settings, plants and Marian statues for inspiration, then demonstrate three examples of windowsill Mary gardens while describing the types of plants to consider. Learn from their examples, then build your own or follow along live. A suggested supplies list will be shared with registrants.

This session will be hosted through a Zoom webinar and the link will be shared in your confirmation email. For questions, contact McKenzie Morin '06 at
