Update #2 - Cancer Victory Garden in New Jersey

Here is the second update from the Cancer Victory Garden at the Trinitas Cancer Center in Elizabeth, NJ!
Hi Diana- Just to keep you posted about the herb garden at Trinitas Cancer Center in Elizabeth, NJ.

We have lots of herbs!! 
When I put out the signal that I was looking for someone to take over the garden, our Complementary Medicine Nurse contacted me.  She would love to start a healing garden in the courtyard with these plants.   What could be better???  Hospital administration still needs to give her the okay, but she's coming upon some roadblocks.  She has a lot of plans and it warmed my heart to know someone else wants to go forward with this project. 

Here are some recent photos.

It won't be long before the baby plants will be transplanted to go home with patients and hopefully also into a new herb garden in the courtyard of the cancer center. 

How lucky your patients are to have you on the medical team contributing to their comprehensive care at your cancer center.  Please keep us updated!

Cultivating health through a garden's nourishment of body and soul,

Diana Dyer, MS, RD
