Vancouver Hospice Society – Hospice Garden
A hospice home provides a home away from home for those patients living with a life-limiting illness who are no longer able to manage at home. In 2012 the club donated $5,000 to the Vancouver Hospice Society to help plan and build the original gardens at the newly opened Vancouver Hospice home at 4651 Granville Street. Once the gardens were created, Club volunteers continued to donate their time to help maintain the gardens. In 2017, in addition to our volunteers’ gardening services, members donated a further $5000 for significant landscaping updates. Most patients look out on the beautiful landscaping which encompasses the building. The garden maintenance provided by our volunteers is an integral and important part of the peace and tranquility of the home.
