Artcenter Traverse City and the Botanic Garden at the Historic Barns Park invite you to celebrate art in the unique setting and context of the community educational garden in Traverse City, Michigan.

From meditation labyrinths to Japanese stone gardens, plants and gardens play an important part in our well-being.  A garden might serve as a tranquil retreat or private escape from the demands of everyday life.  The beauty of flowers can lift spirits, while pulling weeds can be a great release for stress and excess energy.  Watching a butterfly or frog may be a reminder of cycles in nature.  For centuries, human beings have found ways to relate to nature.
