The Native Peace Garden was dedicated on June 22, 2019. The idea for the garden began in 2015, when the late Helen and Jack Mott gifted a portion of their adjoining land to SNCA.

The Native Peace Garden is located behind the Sautee Post Office.

Jewelweed as a topical soother
July 11 • 9am-11am

Come to the Native Peace Garden behind the post office from 9-11:00am, Saturday, July 11, and get your supply of Jewelweed! Many locals use Jewelweed as a topical soother for poison ivy rash, and it has also been used for itchy, irritated and inflamed bites, rashes, and stings. It is not used internally, only as a topical.

We will harvest and blend jewelweed from the garden that you can take home in a baggie, steep, and freeze in ice trays. If you would like to have an alcohol based solution, bring a jar and we can blend it with high alcohol content rubbing alcohol donated by Amy's Green Cleaning. Donations for the garden are welcomed but not required.

We will be maintaining 6 foot distancing and wearing masks when using the blender and interacting with guests. We ask that guests also maintain distancing and wear masks when interacting.

Meditation in the Garden

Mindfulness brings us more fully into the present moment, inviting calm and peace of mind, while Metta guides us into compassion for ourselves that we then extend out to those around us and our global community.

Taught by Linda Davis who has practiced since 1985 and taught since 1992. Linda offers clear instructions for beginners with time to practice and a brief Q & A at each session.

Please bring something to sit on and bug-stuff if you'd like; and please wear your mask. Every Monday, 9:00 - 9:30am.

These sessions are offered freely but Linda will accept donations if you are able and feel moved to do so.
