Medieval Garden now open to the public

Poster: RORRY5@aol.com

 Immanuel Lutheran Church in Greenwood SC has just opened a recreated medieval
garden to the public. It has been fasioned in the tradition of the gardens of
medieval Germany.  As you walk through the garden, imagine it as it could have
been hundreds of years ago, possibly as part of a clioster garden.  This
garden was recreated by Herr Klaus Neubner and a group of volunteers from
within the church. As none of the original gardens have survived from medieval
Germany, this garden was recreated from paintingfs of the period and the
writings of the monks.  This garden features a central lawn surrounded by
raised beds indicative of the period. They have used only plants known to
Germany during Martin Luther's time. Most were found in Charlemange's
"Capitulare de Villis", a decree to his estates, drawn up in 812 AD.
This garden has been reasearched down to the last detail, and is a very
beautiful place to visit.  They are going to be providing tours this weekend
as a part of the festival of flowes, but they will give tours for groups with
reservations, or you could just drop by and wander around on your own!!!
