In light of their positive reception at the New Eden Fair, I've decided to establish it as a permanent exhibit in the biodome of my Luxury Yacht.

There are at present four gardens:
A Formal Garden of Dam Torsad
A Khanid Meditation Garden
A Colonist's Garden on a Storm Planet
A Ni-Kunni Water Garden from Mishi IV

I may be adding "A Commoner's Cottage Garden from Mehkios"

Tours are by appointment only. Since ti is mobile, I am willing to considering bringing it to visitors or if people wish to rent the venue out for a special event.

Please feel free to contact me if you'd like.

What are these two gardens

A Formal Garden of Dam Torsad
A Khanid Meditation Garden

and how do they differ from one another?

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.

I can recommend a visit to discover the answer. All the gardens are true works of art.

Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.

While both True Amarr and Khanid are united in the Empire and the Kingdom and the Faith, there are cultural differences. Some of these differences can be seen in their public and private spaces, such as gardens. If you'd like a tour, I'd be delighted to give you one.

I thoroughly recommend taking a tour.

The Gardens are beautiful beyond words and a wonderful place to take that special someone, the Mishi IV Oasis was particularly memorable. However aesthetics are not the only draw as each of the exhibits has audio recordings set to play as you enter the area that provide very informative commentaries on what one is viewing.

What fills the soul? Something that guides a lost child back to it's parents arms. Or waves that dye the shores of the heart gold. A blessed breath to nurture life in a land of wheat. Or the path the Sef descend drawn in ash. In the wake of fire.

Please kindly clarify if a visit will require a trek into Imperial space.

It's in my Yacht. I'd be willing to discuss traveling to another location as indicated in the OP.

I am appreciative of your kind praise, thank you.

I assume you were able to see them at the New Eden Fair.

If you would like a personal tour with some additional commentary or answers to any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Would this tour involve some religious education as its main reason? While I'm not currently enlisted I would be interested in visiting if its not specifically a scripture lesson (I honestly wouldn't mind if it was religious information about the exhibits, that actually would be really interesting).

The main reason is to expose capsuleers and baseliners outside of the Empire as to aspects of its culture which outsiders might not be familiar with. While there are certainly religious aspects, which is unavoidable with the Empire, it is a component only and the gardens are not scripture lesson but rather focused on the main races and environs of the empire.

Although you've given me an idea possibly for another garden!

That sounds really interesting then (I'm a little afraid of what I inspired, I'll be honest). I just can't enter Amarr high sec space..... Or Caldari..... Or Minmatar for that matter......

Comm me. We can find a mutually acceptable location in low security space I am sure. For security reasons. I'd rather not have that discussion on the IGS.

When I get the chance I gladly will. And I shouldn't have any problems going anywhere in lowsec.

I see if I can sync my operating time with yours and make an appointment.

However, I cannot set foot anywhere close to Imperial or State (except Jita, due to some weird loophole revolving around jump clones) high sec, so we will have to arrange for a rendezvous in either Federation or Republic space.

I would be greatly honored if you allowed me to gift to you a new specimen the Nighting Gale's botanical research team have engineered.

The Ash Orchid, a pristine Orchidacea presents a muted multiaspect of greys on its exterior bloom blossoming to expose an intense florescent whorl of deep orange and yellow hues with bright red stamen. Its habitat is subtropic with mild humidity and would be an exquisite addition to the formal garden.

Taxonomy: Orchidacea Volcanis

That sounds lovely Mr. Cassidy. I would be delighted to add this to the gardens. Please contact me to discuss delivery and planting.
