Purpose, Passions, and Principles
HAVING FUN IS REQUIRED!
Wellfield Botanic Gardens is a place of joy…a place to be entertained and play! All of our fun stories involve you! Now it’s your turn to make memories and write your own stories!
WE LOVE TO TEACH A THING OR TWO
Nature is a classroom. Between available programs and the environment, we’ve created a place to learn new things about our world. The more you know, the more you enjoy.
THE BEST THING TO LEARN IS TO LOVE THE GIFT OF NATURE
Yes, we love nature! We believe in the enhancement and preservation of our environment. Learn to love the gift of nature along with us.
THE SECRET TO A GOOD LIFE? GET OUTSIDE!
Body, mind and spirit are rejuvenated by the sights, sounds, and fragrances in nature. Gardens have healing attributes and must be embraced and indulged in often! Everyone’s favorite spot is unique to them, but we suspect yours will be right next to ours!
ART IS EVERYWHERE.
Creation is evident in a garden and there’s no better backdrop to artistic expressions than nature. Our sculptures are the best motivators for enthusiastic artists. We encourage the enjoyment of what exists and the development of every form of future art.
OUR NEIGHBORHOOD EXPANDS AS PEOPLE GATHER
WBG is a catalyst of what is and what is to come in our community, both physically and philosophically. The Gardens are a representation of new growth as a community has come together to pool their resources and create a place of serenity and beauty for generations to come. It is the gateway…the initiation to Elkhart…the welcome center as we gather to celebrate nature and invite everyone to enter into the spirit of this community.
