Defending the Prouty Garden

Posted · Add Comment

The Prouty Garden, a beloved therapeutic healing garden that is the soul of world-renowned Boston Children’s Hospital, is threatened with ill-advised destruction to make room for indoor facilities that could be located elsewhere and only benefit some of the many patients. As a guest of Chris Lovett on BNN (Boston Neighborhood Network) News, Tom describes Prouty Garden and the shortcomings of the replacement green space. Beecher Grogan, Tom’s fellow guest, movingly describes the Prouty Garden and its meaning to a particular patient, her late daughter. The fight to save the life of the Prouty Garden is a parable about the healing power of nature.
