Wilmington, NC – Lower Cape Fear Hospice is offering a no-cost workshop for those who have lost a loved one to learn about creating a memorial garden on Saturday, Sept. 21 in Wilmington.
“Gardening is a healing, therapeutic activity that helps ease grief,” said LCFH Healing Arts Coordinator and Bereavement Counselor Lorraine Perry. “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.”
Workshop participants will walk through the Lower Cape Fear Hospice Heritage Garden and labyrinth, view a gardening demonstration and see small and container gardens. Resource materials will be provided. This workshop is facilitated by Perry and a New Hanover County Arboretum Horticultural Therapist.
The workshop will be held Saturday, Sept. 21, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Phillips LifeCare & Counseling Center and Heritage Garden at 1414 Physicians Drive in Wilmington. Pre-registration is required; to register, call 910-796-7991.
