Sensory Garden

The Audio-Reader Sensory Garden

The garden on the grounds of the Baehr Audio-Reader center in Lawrence is filled with flowers, herbs, and accessories to delight the senses. Plants with interesting textures, such as Lamb's Ear, intermingle with fragrant leaves of mint and lavender. The sounds of wind chimes join the chirping of birds visiting the feeders. 

Plants are in raised beds, making a hands-on experience easy for pedestrians and wheelchair users. A winding brick pathway leads from the house, past the raised beds, to the pavilion. 



The garden is open to the public, and groups are welcome. To make an appointment for a tour, or to find our more about the garden, please call or email Beth McKenzie, here at Audio-Reader; 785 864 5336. To order a personalized brick for the Sensory Garden, click here.

The garden was built, and is maintained, by volunteers. If you have a green thumb, or just a few hours time, you can help, too. Or if your group is available for a worthwhile project, please call us.
