     In developing an environment centered on patient wellness, the healing garden has become an important part of the hospital environment. Recently I have shared information on the Dale Chihuly Healing Garden in Nebraska and other examples. Today’s post tells the story of the new healing garden at the VA hospital in Seattle and the outstanding landscape architect behind it.

     If you know of a healing garden in your community, please share it through the Contact Form at the end of this blog.

Read…Reflect…Share!

“Nature revitalizes you” is the driving concept behind the new green space at Seattle’s Veterans Affairs medical center, writes Nicole Brodeur.”
