Garden of Hope and Courage

Thanks to Amy Lane at the Garden of Hope and Courage for submitting this garden for the Therapeutic Landscapes Database Gardens page. This healing garden in Naples, FL is located on the Downtown Naples Hospital Campus, and was built in honor of Jan Emfield, who died after a long battle with breast cancer. “By blending water, plants, sculpture and the natural topography of the earth into a therapeutic retreat, the garden will offer patients a chance to reduce their negative emotions and stress. Its purpose is to inspire hope and courage; two necessary ingredients in the fight against cancer and all illness.”
