Healing Garden Continues To Grow
As the summer heat builds, the cooling water of the new waterfall is now flowing in Pawnee Valley Community Hospital’s Healing Garden. While the waterfall’s landscaping still has to be completed, patients and staff now have the luxury of being able to visit the Healing Garden and enjoy the gentle sounds of the water cascading down the two resurfacing waterfalls.
“The completion of the waterfall takes us one step closer to having the Healing Garden completed. The next step is getting our fence put up along with the irrigation system,” shared Linda Henderson, PVCH Foundation Director. “Once the fence is up, our patients can experience more privacy in this tranquil setting.”
Among the items yet to be completed include the gazebo, pagoda and of course the landscaping. “Everything depends on funding and without the funding we are unable to move forward with this project,” commented Henderson. Healing Garden Legacy Bricks are still available for a donation of $35 to be engraved and placed along the pathway in the Healing Garden. Each brick allows for three lines of 14 characters each for engraving. This is a great way to honor family members, special occasions or loved ones.
Henderson invites anyone is interested in a tour of the Healing Garden to see the progress first hand to give her a call. “We are very excited about the progress we have made, but we still have a ways to go before we can see this project to completion.”
