Shawn Steinke Memorial Garden and Labyrinth

Peggy Logue, Janet Steinke, Nancy McLaughlin, Marketa Anderson, Scott Brunka, and Jerry Shelhorn of Grandma's Gardens have been working on a project to create a meditation garden and Labyrinth in memory of Shawn Steinke.

The labyrinth path will be a nautilus, spiral shape with plantings of trees, shrubs, and native flower species in the center. It is planned that the path will be started in early September and the plantings will be done sometime in the fall. A bench will also be a part of the garden.

Shawn Steinke was a true nature lover and enjoyed hiking, running, gardening, and spending time with his family. He was a Friend of Miller Ecological Park and attended several meetings, sharing information and expertise as a Master Gardener and owner/operator of Good Natured By Design Landscape Company. All of us at Miller Ecological Park feel very fortunate to have known and shared time with Shawn.

There have been many donations to Miller Ecological Park in his memory and we are using them in a way that would appropriately honor Shawn's memory.
