Students Demonstrate Caritas through Community Gardening


Students have spent multiple weekends volunteering at the Healing and Meditation Garden Park in the Vandeventer neighborhood. Rosati-Kain was invited to volunteer at the Garden by the sisters in the Daughters of Charity. The Garden was founded in 2018 by the Veteran Women of Influence, with the purpose of being a "Horticultural Therapeutic Naturescaping Project," that serves to better the community.

Faculty members have taken our students on various Saturdays to aid in everything from digging dirt and laying mulch, to planting and watering plants. While this can be labor-intensive and messy, these students have found a passion for gardening and the benefits it provides to the community. The work being done at the Healing and Meditation Garden reduces storm water runoff, protects drinking water, and aids in the preservation of native plants. It is so wonderful to see our students and faculty demonstrate our core value of Caritas.
