Garden of Hope & Healing
Dedicated in 2011, the Garden of Hope & Healing was established as a haven of tranquility.
With an arbor, a sand garden, and a pavilion, this therapeutic garden provides an escape for hospice and cancer patients, their caregivers, and others in the community in need of solace, inspiration, and renewal. The garden provides a venue for healing activities for local groups such as children’s bereavement programs, one-on-one bereavement counseling, victim assistance groups, Alzheimer’s support groups, mental health groups, and many others. We invite you to relax on 10 acres of greenspace that hosts plant life, walking paths, water ponds, and garden spaces for large gatherings or solitary meditation.
Spartanburg Regional Foundation awarded Hatcher an initial seed money grant of $10,000 for site preparation. Women Giving for Spartanburg awarded a $37,500 grant to fund the major construction and installation for the Garden of Hope & Healing.
The Garden of Hope & Healing was collaboratively designed by Hatcher Garden and its initial partners, Spartanburg Regional Cancer and Hospice Divisions, Interim HealthCare Hospice, and Century Company, with pro-bono work donated by Albert B. Jolly, Jr. AIA and Associates and The LandArt Design Group, Inc.
