Healing Gardens, a two-acre expanse of woodland and perennial gardens on Stone Hill Farm off Dean Street in Saint Charles, today announced the June opening date will be Sunday, June 12 from 11 am–4 pm. The mosquito free gardens are open to the public on set dates for the purpose of enjoying the natural wooded setting and perennial gardens. The admission cost is $5 per person and $10 per family, call for discounted group rates. In solidarity and to honor the journey, cancer survivors are always free. Donations of time or money for upkeep are welcome. Healing Gardens is cultivated and hosted by Deborah Marqui owner of Stone Hill Farm with her husband Buzz Marqui.

““Bring your children or grandchildren to explore the “Children’s Garden,” They can plant a seed, play in the dirt, swing from the trees, play in the Forest Cottage, climb a log or put together butterfly puzzles. Join in and absorb the enthusiasm of children at play, who naturally allow their spirits to catch up with their bodies by being in nature,” said Ms. Marqui. Ms. Marqui, who is cancer-free from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma since 1996 and in remission from breast cancer since 2002, finds great restoration of spirit in her gardens and property and wants to share that with the public for their own rejuvenation. Visiting individuals or small groups are welcome to do as they please. No activity is required or requested. People are welcome to read, nap, draw, meditate, journal, swing or simply do nothing. Stone Hill Farm is the home of Buzz and Deb Marqui where they have lived since 1972, raising four children. The June 12th opening will offer an optional outdoor Yoga In The Garden class from 1 pm–2 pm taught by Nancy May. Go to www.yogafromtheheart.org or call 815-319-3500 to register.
