A Healing Garden is Born

Last Saturday was a momentous occasion at Wellness Within.  Middleton Gardens Landscaping, Happy Spaces volunteers, Redback Construction, Rene’ Walden and Wellness Within Board and Staff members combined their efforts and talents to transform the center’s front yard into a welcoming and nurturing garden.   There are a variety of beautiful and fragrant flowers to admire in addition to a spiral garden packed with a culinary pharmacy of cancer-fighting herbs and flowers.  This is your garden, please come and enjoy it.  Feel free to relax on the bench in the garden or on our new front porch patio furniture overlooking it.

A heartfelt thank you to the many donors that helped our dream become a reality:  Kate Bowers Landscaping, Rene’ Walden, Horizon Irrigation, Hastiies Landscaping, Haight Nursery, Green Acres Nursery and Sherwin-Williams in Roseville.
