Monticello Cancer Center’s Healing Garden Begins to Bloom

The Monticello Cancer Center’s Healing Garden is now home to a rain garden. Volunteers from the Wright County Soil and Water Conservation District, Monticello’s Connect 5 program, the Monticello Cancer Center and community members began planting the rain garden which will not only become a beautiful part of the Healing Garden but also a beneficial, natural way to purify water that may soak into the ground or reach the Mississippi River.

Funded in part by a grant from the Wright County Soil and Water Conservation District, the rain garden will also serve as a place for education. Signs explaining how to build a rain garden and descriptions about how they work will be placed in the Healing Garden.

The Monticello Cancer Center’s Healing Garden is designed to create a beautiful and reflective space for patients and families looking for a place of hope and healing.
