Many of the bricks in the walkway are laser- engraved, with messages of thanks or commemoration
for loved ones, weddings or other events, beloved pets, and more. Anything you'd like to say to the world can be engraved onto a brick
which will be placed into the walkway to show your message for many years to come.

The Audio-Reader Sensory Garden
The garden on the grounds of the Baehr Audio-Reader center in Lawrence
is filled with flowers, herbs, and accesories to delight the senses. Plants with interesting
textures, such as Lamb's Ear, intermingle with fragrant leaves of mint and lavender. The
sounds of wind chimes join the chirping of birds visiting the feeders.
Plants are in raised beds, making a hands-on experience easy for pedestrians and wheelchair users.
A winding brick pathway leads from the house, past the raised beds, to the gazebo.
The garden is open to the public,
and groups are welcome. To make an appointment for a tour, or to find our more about the garden,
please call or email Brenda Berg-Dyck, here at Audio-Reader; 785 864 4634.
The garden was built, and is maintained, by volunteers.
If you have a green thumb, or just a few hours time, you can help, too. Or if your group is available for a worthwhile
project, please call us.
