  • Reno Garden Tenth Anniversary Celebration

    May 2022 through September 2022

    It hardly seems like ten years since the Reno Garden opened and yet it feels like the garden has been part of the life of the church forever. It nestles into the hillside overlooking Wedge Pond as if it’s always been there. The garden has become a part of the church community and the broader Winchester community. Visit any time during the week in good weather and you will find people softly chatting, eating lunch, or sitting quietly overlooking the water remembering a loved one. We’ve had commitment ceremonies, labyrinth walks, baptisms, rehearsals, preschool yoga, birthday parties, church services, and burials.

    Ten years has given us the opportunity to attend to the basic maintenance needs of the garden as well as special projects to enhance its pathways. In honor of the 10th Anniversary, we would like to raise $30,000 to ensure the health and beauty of the garden for the future. There will be a few fundraising activities, so watch around the church and in the e-mail blast for them. We hope you will participate and join us on September 25, 2022, for a celebration of ten years of garden history.
