"If you look the right way, the whole world is a garden."
-- Louisa May Alcott

Dedicated and opened in October of 1995, The Garden of Hope, located on the grounds of Southampton Hospital, was created to bring attention to the work of The Coalition and gain community support. The Garden is designed for all seasons. It is a model of low maintenance, toxic free and self sustaining native plantings that do not require pesticides, fertilizers or other chemicals. The Garden honors all those whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. It is a celebration of life and living... of saving lives through early cancer detection and treatment. The Garden was designed by local resident, Betsey Perrier of Meadows and Woods, and overseen by local nurseryman, Mike Graham of Frankenbach-Deerfield Nursery.

As a volunteer project, all trees, plants, hard scape, outdoor furniture, bricks and labor were donated.

The Brick Walkway

A highlight of The Garden is the brick walkway featuring engraved bricks. Four thousand bricks line the walkway and to date, over 400 have been engraved. Bricks will continue to be sold until all bricks have been engraved.
