Kindness Rocks Garden at MarketStreet Lynnfield

Kindness Rocks Garden Art Exhibit at MarketStreet Lynnfield

MarketStreet Lynnfield welcomes the return of the Kindness Rocks Garden, an installation of painted rocks with inspirational messages that is meant to encourage random acts of kindness and spread positivity. Participants are invited to leave their own painted rocks, as well as take any that inspire them. The project is spearheaded by Lynnfield for Love and the local chapter of the Girl Scouts. MarketStreet Lynnfield is one of eight sites in the North Shore hosting a Kindness Rocks project. The garden is located on the island between Starbucks and Justice at MarketStreet Lynnfield, and will be on display through the end of the year. MarketStreet Lynnfield is located at 600 Market Street in Lynnfield, MA. www.marketstreetlynnfield.com 

The Kindness Rocks Project was founded by Megan Murphy, a Cape Cod native who lost her parents at a young age. During difficult or stressful moments in her life, she found herself looking for uplifting “signs” on her morning walk, such as a heart shaped rock or a piece of sea glass. It occurred to Murphy that others were looking for signs as well, and she began painting and dropping a few rocks at a time for others to find. Murphy began receiving messages from strangers about how much the rock they found meant to them. The hobby has now turned into a kindness movement and has popped up in the form of inspiration gardens around Cape Cod and far beyond.

“MarketStreet Lynnfield is very proud to bring back the Kindness Rocks Garden. We welcome the opportunity to support worthy causes and foster a greater sense of community in the North Shore. This grassroots movement comes straight from the heart and uplifts everyone who comes across it,” said Nanci Horn, General Manager of MarketStreet Lynnfield.
