Because of the beauty of our natural surroundings here, WBRE- TV dubbed us as "Luzerne County's best kept secret"!
Crabtree Gardens is located in a picturesque country setting and is the perfect place to clear your mind, relax, and enjoy nature as you wander through five acres of naturalized gardens including meditation, mindfulness and grounding areas.
Our Eden is a perfect location for mind, body and spirit rejuvenation. We have recently re-opened our yoga classes and are building a new community that appreciates nature and all of the healing energy that it provides. There are several new meditation areas including our new Mindfulness Circle and Chime Tower, Easter Island (opening fall 2016) in addition to our muli-tiered Yoga Decks (popular among students). The yoga barn-studio is a cozy heated room used for winter yoga and meditation classes.
We can arrange private yoga or meditative classes for small groups. Consider hosting your own private yoga retreat for a few friends or gather them together for a nature-inspired day that can bring balance and harmony to your life.
The naturally maintained gardens boast scenic locations and lush shrub borders which make our garden well-suited for special occasion photos. Our gardens are the ideal place to arrange an artist retreat or plein air day where you can create your masterpiece in uninterrupted solace. After all, WBRE-TV considers us Luzerne County's Best Kept Secret!
In addition to our regularly scheduled programs and classes, we would be pleased to put together a special private event for your small group as a team building event. We offer seasonal Women's Retreats and we can arrange a customized getaway for a small private group. Pre-arranged garden club tours are welcome.
Crabtree Gardens has inspired a leather handbag line, The Kristy Bag by CG which is a collaborative effort between designer Kristy Lash and leather artisan Dave Crabtree. For more visit the blog The Kristy Bag by CG or the online store Kristybag.
