"We are creating contemporary women's medicine societies and moon circles. We honor the spirits of the land and, through the Goddess, we weave the light to support and protect the planet in these changing times."
~ Shasta Zaring
More than a Garden space, we are also an intersectional, Earth-honoring community of womxn who practice a range of healing, visual and spiritual arts. Our mission is to commune with the Divine Feminine energies of the Earth and cosmos, in order to heal, protect and strengthen all beings, seen and unseen.

Wild & Wonderful
Created by Shasta Zaring in 1990, the Goddess Garden Atlanta is an urban wilderness habitat and healing sanctuary nestled in the heart of the City of Atlanta. It is a sacred space dedicated to the Divine Feminine in all religions, paths and cultures. Altars to Goddesses from various world cultures adorn the paths and are tended by the Garden's keepers.
This one-acre private preserve, open to the public during daylight hours, is cultivated without the use of pesticides and herbicides and is a certified Audubon Society Wilderness Habitat. Located just off the Atlanta Beltline, the Garden is in walking distance to many city attractions, such as Ponce City Market, Historic 4th Ward Park, Carter Center and Little Five Points.
