The Touch and Smell Garden

Fountain at the Touch and Smell GardenThe Touch and Smell Garden was constructed in the early 1970s with the assistance of the Sandhills Garden Club to serve as an outdoor classroom to learn and study herbs through sensory perceptions by touching and smelling the actual established plant material.

To differentiate between plant varieties, visitors could wash their hands in the fountain pool to eliminate fragrance prior to touching another herb for identification.

The garden houses a beautiful fountain and the four seasons statues. The emphasis of this garden is fragrance and accessibility for our disabled visitors. It is a favorite place for weddings and receptions.
