I am a counselor at McLean Hospital and have begun a
Gardening Group for my clients. As I trust you will
understand, getting your hands in the soil is a very
grounding experience. Being surrounded by beauty
inspires healing. This will be our second season here
in the Hope Cottage garden and the enthusiasm for the
project is considerable. Unfortunately, we have no
budget and everything we collect comes through
donations...a clipping here,a flat there. This is good
and bad...the patchwork nature of the project leaves us
somewhat vulnerable but also provides ample opportunity
for teamwork and creativity. If you are interested in
learning more about the garden and/or are willing to help
by donating a plant or two, please contact me.
I can be reached at the above email address or directly
by phone here at McLean:

If you are not in a position to help with supplies,
please consider donating your ideas. Everything helps.
It is a real gift for these women to experience the
kindness of others...to see there are people out there
who help simply because it is the right thing to do.
I hope to hear from some of you soon.
*Please let me know if you have any ideas about where
else I might go for help!
Feel free to drop by and see what we're up to!
