The western slope of Lookout Mountain and the ever-flowing water of Lookout Creek create the natural boundaries for these 600 acres. Southern hardwood forest and open fields provide ideal habitat for a unique, often rare, diversity of plants, animals, and insects. In the gardens, plants that both nourish and heal are seasonally cultivated.

The Yoga House and Payne Park & Pavilion are ideal settings for mindfulness classes, staff retreats, church meetings, educational workshops, and celebrations. Whether you are an event facilitator, retreat participant, party attendee, community member, educator, student, or volunteer, we welcome you.
