Herrin woman shares therapeutic garden

Posted: Updated:

HERRIN, Ill. -- A woman in Herrin created an outdoor garden space and calls it a tool for healing.

Laura Webber spends a lot of time in her garden, planting everything from Zinnias to basil, to tomatoes plants and moon flowers. She even cultivated some seeds from Nebraska for the past 17 years.

"There's little grandmas and grandpas, neighbors with babies that "ooh and ahh" and that is so satisfying, it touches my heart that they're enjoying it too," Webber said.

She calls the experience therapeutic.

"It's so completely satisfying that other people can enjoy this as much as I can and with the stress of paying bills, doing this, looking for a job, you come out here and you're in a different world," Webber said.

She encourages others to give gardening a try and welcomes her neighbors to stop by and enjoy the view.
