Our Mission & Vision for Distant Hill
"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant." Robert Louis Stevenson
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, workshops, and research and to make the land and all of its resources available to local educational facilities, educators, students, and the public.
We hope visitors to Distant Hill will leave with a better understanding of the vital connections between plants, animals, and humans, and how we can use Earth's resources
in a way that strengthens and sustains that connection and leaves the environment a healthier and richer place.
