Our Mission and Vision

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant."  Robert Louis Stevenson

Our Mission

Distant Hill Gardens is dedicated to inspiring and empowering both children and adults to cultivate an intimate connection to the natural world. We hope to serve as a model of environmental stewardship and to motivate visitors to become more informed stewards of the land.

Our Vision for Distant Hill Gardens

Our vision is to develop Distant Hill Gardens into a venue for environmental, horticultural, and nature-based classes and workshops, and to make the land and all of its resources available to local educational facilities, educators, students, and the public.
