The Art of Life Healing Garden in Woodward Park broke ground in 2015. This innovative collaboration united local businesses, service groups, medical and arts communities, schools, families, and individuals of all ages to take part in creating a place for all to heal, find hope, and renewal. The 3-acre space offers hope to all those going through a difficult season in life, not just cancer. Cared for 100% by volunteers in the community, the Healing Garden features works of art by cancer survivors, areas of reflection, outdoor musical instruments, play areas, a labyrinth, and a viewer for those who are color blind to see color, and more!
This toolkit has been compiled by Explore Valley Garden for the partnering community gardens in the Central Valley. We encourage you to explore these resources and educate others during National Public Garden Week.
