Lower Cape Fear Hospice’s Heritage Garden will provide the backdrop for a no cost, grief workshop while creating a beautiful garden for healing and remembrance.
Gardening is a healing activity that helps ease grief. If you are grieving and interested in creating a space for healing and reflection, Lower Cape Fear Hospice is offering a unique workshop on how to create a memorial garden.
The workshop will be from 9:30 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Sept. 16, in the Heritage Garden, at Phillips LifeCare & Counseling Center, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington. To register, call 910-796-7991. There is no cost to attend, but donations are appreciated.
“Remembering a loved one with a garden creates a peaceful place of beauty that inspires growth and hope for the future as well as a setting in which to reminisce,” Lorraine Perry, Healing Arts coordinator and bereavement counselor, said. “We offer this workshop in our Heritage Garden because it provides inspiration for participates to create a unique garden space of their own.”
Facilitators will share a presentation showcasing small and container gardens and provide gardening demonstrations. You will also take a walk through the Heritage Garden labyrinth. Resource materials will be provided.
Lower Cape Fear Hospice is dedicated to providing the highest level of care and comfort to patients with life-limiting illness; support and counseling to families; and education to the community. For more information, visit lcfh.org.
