A beautiful space to sit and think

Hospice Garden transformed thanks to green-fingered volunteers.

February 11, 2022

The Rotorua Hospice garden has been transformed thanks to green-fingered volunteers.

Volunteer Manager Sue explains the impact of the garden project.

A garden can be invigorating with its constant movement and aroma but it can also be a source of solace, a place for meditation and contemplation. The Rotorua Hospice garden is simple in its design, focusing on nature. Patients visiting the garden can see the textures and colours, smell the aromas and observe the birds and bees. Staff also benefit from having a place to contemplate and rejuvenate.

It is a “young developing garden” and the work of local landscape designers, business partners, Rotary Rotorua Sunrise members, hospice staff, and many volunteers.

The overall goal of the Rotorua Hospice garden has been to make it as relaxing and comforting as possible, a safe place of tranquility for contemplation and reflection.
