Joyce Pearl Jones, 
Eco-GardenTour Guide and certified Botanical Docent
 
Trained by Brookgreen Gardens as a volunteer Botanical Docent, Ms. Jones led garden tours through America's largest outdoor sculpture garden in 2003.
 
As a Tour Director, Ms. Jones specializes in Asian gardens (Japanese, Chinese, Korean) and other gardens-within-a-garden (i.e. Turkish Ottoman garden, Missouri Botancial Garden) that give the guest both a garden experience and an exotic cultural experience.
 
Ms. Jones continues to introduce garden lovers to the "gems" of garden tourism.
 
Her newest discovery? 
 
The Garden of Infinite Compassion, a GEM of a garde, is a garden within a garden, is an Asian style, contemplative garden that she recently discovered in Ketchum, Idaho. Blessed by the Dalai Lama who delivered a 400 pound prayer wheel as a focal point in the garden, this garden was designed as a memorial to 9-11 victims and their families.
 
Kaufmann Memorial Gardens, Kansas City, is an intimate city garden and a good place to remember loved ones. Ms. Jones partnered in 2005 with professional speaker, author and gardener, Dr. Jean Lebudun Mairs of St Joseph, MO,  to lead tours of this garden for spiritual groups.
