Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice Garden
In 2016 Greenfingers Charity completed its 50th hospice garden project as work finished on two tranquil garden spaces at the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in Sheffield.
Whilst many Greenfingers gardens focus on bringing elements of play and fun to children with ongoing illnesses who spend time in hospices, the gardens at Bluebell Wood highlight the extremely important work the charity does in providing the therapeutic benefits of gardens to those dealing with very upsetting end-of-life circumstances.
The gardens at Bluebell Wood are tranquil, calm spaces that sit beside the two bereavement suites at the hospice and are designed to offer privacy and space for contemplation at times of grief. Careful thought was given to providing year-round interest with planting to attract wildlife, bringing movement and an overall sense of tranquility in the gardens for families at difficult times.
