Sensory Garden at Wm. Hall Library

Established June 28, 2017

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” Cicero

Planted at the back entrance to the historic Wm. Hall Library, the Sensory Garden planted by the Edgewood Garden Club was established as one of the three unique public gardens in the Edgewood Community. On, June 28, 2017, the EGC dedicated the Sensory Garden at Wm. Hall Library for public enjoyment and beautification. 

The Wm. Hall Library is the longtime home of EGC club meetings and has a lasting connection with the garden club. This under-used planting area came to our attention during regular visits for meetings. Having fallen into disrepair and misuse, the club saw the possibilities for a raised bed garden which would enhance the beauty of the library, engage and educate the visitor.  

Fully funded and executed by the EGC, this sensory garden is an environment designed with the purpose of stimulating the senses.

Each plant was selected to engage the visitor’s sense of sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing.

You can SEE the colors of the Euphorbia and the tall Obelisk at the center.

You can SMELL the lavender and geranium

You can TOUCH the giant lamb’s ear or the prickly thistle

You can TASTE the chives or the thyme

You can HEAR the visiting pollinators or the wind rustle the viburnum leaves.

Enjoy your visit to the garden!
