The World in a Garden
Welcome to Danielle's Garden.
"Peace of mind is a worthy treasure" states the motto as
you enter Danielle's Garden.
Danielle's Garden is situated on the north coast of Jamaica, on land below
the residence of the late Ralph Watson Barnett. The garden is styled with a
composite statue garden adjoined by 'Sophia', the island on the lake, set
in a romantic landscape.
Mr. Barnett was born in 1920. As with the lineage of many Jamaicans, he
was the descendant of slaves brought from the West African coast. His father
left for Cuba, deserting his mother when he was quite young. Striving was
rewarded with financial success and a legacy. Mr. Barnett died in December 1987.
The Gardens recall his memory.
Danielle is his granddaughter and Sophia his daughter. The name of the
garden was chosen as an obvious link between the generations. The theme of the
garden is a portrayed association of all humanity, as complemented by the
displayed representative forms from the world's seven continents.
The World Journal is a compilation of papers covering various aspects of
art, science, and humanity. These papers, which have been authored by prominent
Jamaicans, have been selected for publication here to become A Journal of World
Arts, History, Science, and Culture.
Please enjoy your exploration of the Danielle's Garden website and study
of our World Journal. As you
circle the virtual grounds, may you be reminded of our motto as prominently
displayed in our Statue Garden:
"Peace of mind is a worthy treasure."
A worthy project and a treasure of sorts, if you care to take this virtual
Happy to have you visit, and we look forward to seeing you when you
actually visit Jamaica.
