Christ Episcopal Church Rockville is a church whose aim is to serve as a green oasis in its urban environment of Rockville, MD, as environmental stewardship and creation care are central to its mission and ministry. Utilizing the church and school campus, generations of gardeners have carefully crafted their landscape, building partnerships and friendships throughout their community. Its campus currently supports multiple pollinator gardens; a Columbarium prayer and meditation garden that is a certified National Wildlife Foundation Sacred Grounds habitat, a memorial garden, and a recreational green space. Care for the environment and hands-on gardening activities have been incorporated into the science curriculum at its preschool to 8th grade school and their parish youth and adult learning programs. CEC Rockville hopes to continue to develop their gardens as a space of spiritual connection in their community and welcome visitors to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of their landscape.
