A garden for solace and studies

Listen to this story
St. Lawrence University unveils a new sacred space this weekend. The North Country Japanese Garden, designed and built by students and faculty, will serve as an outdoor classroom and a place for quiet reflection. It's open to the public and includes quadrants with traditional Zen landscape elements - a grassy "strolling" garden, a dry stream and a shady moss garden. The Canton garden is based on a design made by several students who visited Zen gardens in Kyoto, Japan, in 2006 as part of a class project and research grant. Todd Moe toured the redesigned inner courtyard of Sykes Hall and found a blend of nature, art, East Asian and Adirondack aesthetics.
