Psalm 23 Garden

Sarah Eberle’s Psalm 23 Garden is a garden for our time, a garden for a pandemic. The famous psalm speaks of God’s presence with us in all moments of life. Sarah’s garden, designed for Bible Society, takes us on a journey through the psalm to a restful destination. We hope it will resonate with you, and that you’ll be inspired to create your own Psalm 23 community garden.

The Garden

The garden brings Psalm 23 - 'The Lord is my shepherd' - to life. It offers a sense of the journey through the ups and downs of life, and leads us to a place of sanctuary. We all need that sense of sanctuary right now, don't we? You can find Sarah's garden in the Sanctuary section of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

How you can get involved?

After a long, isolated year, why not come back together by creating a community garden on the theme of Psalm 23? You’ll be creating a beautiful place for everyone (and wildlife) and have the chance to reflect on the psalm. You can do this anywhere. You don’t even need a garden, though it helps.

I’d been in on-off pain for years. But, other things fell into place, like mental fog and fatigue. It was also heart-breaking, because it is incurable and tends to be progressive, although there are drugs that hold it at bay...'
