FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn — The healing garden at the state fair is a great place to find some quiet shade.
It’s planted with healing plants like lavender, currant, chamomile, sage and so many more. The sound of running water is a soothing change of pace from the fried foods and noise elsewhere on the fairgrounds.
Established in 2019, this State Fair garden brings peaceful and positive energy to its visitors. Anyone can sit and enjoy the sound of rushing water from multiple waterfalls, which provides a sense of relaxation.
The garden is also filled with healing and medicinal plants, including calendula, aloe, chamomile, angelica, peppermint, elderberry, ashwagandha, passionflower and more.
Learn more about these plants with educational signage throughout the garden.
