Howard Ulfelder, MD Healing Garden
The Howard Ulfelder, MD Healing Garden is a 6,300-square-foot garden on the 8th floor in the Yawkey Center for Outpatient Care at Massachusetts General Hospital. It features an enclosed pavilion for use in all four seasons and an exterior section with pathways, a water fountain, and seating for patients and their families.
Perhaps you know someone who is sick and could benefit from a walk through your garden and a basket of freshly picked produce. It might seem trivial to you, but to them, it could be the lift that they really need to get through the next day, week, chemo treatment. The sights, sounds and smells are so familiar to us but can be so far away to someone who is sick. Even a winter garden is interesting and there is always something to do or see. Dig up a few leftover carrots if the ground isn't frozen yet, follow the footpath of a bird or rabbit through the snow, or sprinkle bird seed around to attract some winter feathered friends.
