The Peter Hodgkinson Centre provides acute inpatient care for people suffering from mental health conditions. During 2015 we were asked to manage the design and development of a therapeutic garden in an unused courtyard within the Centre.
The idea for the garden was put forward by a Governor and former patient of the Centre, who felt that a garden would help to aid people’s recovery by providing an environment conducive to healing and relaxation. Patients and staff were consulted with throughout the design process to ensure that the final design would directly reflect their ideas and meet their needs. The garden will be built during 2016. Once completed Green Synergy will continue to work with the Centre to incorporate gardening into patient care plans.
