This beautiful educational garden, authentic to the Eighteenth Dynasty of ancient Egypt, is based on examples of gardens from the remains of the city of Akhetaton, now called Amarna. The ancient Egyptians would relax in a garden like this next to their home—a garden full of medicinal plants and beautiful and fragrant flowers.
"What you see before you is a manifestation of the love Rosicrucians feel for this place that we call Rosicrucian Park and the commitment we feel toward the ideals of Peace and Tolerance."
-Grand Master Julie Scott, Rosicrucian Peace Garden dedication speech
All of the plants that appeared in their gardens had some use, be it as food or medicine. They carefully planted to take advantage of the beauty of each plant. A pool in the garden provided a cool spot for relaxation and contemplation, as well as habitat for fish and lotus plants. Small buildings in the garden provided places to honor ancestors and deities. Arbors filled with grapes decorated these gardens, as well as providing fruit and wine to the family.
Thoughtful attention was given to every detail in the Rosicrucian Peace Garden, creating a truly educational and inspirational experience for guests at Rosicrucian Park.
