Fisher House Boston
The joint efforts of garden design by Niels Bodecker & Monique Allen and the creation of the sculpture "Integro" by Staff Sgt William Kleineldler synergized and developed into the Healing Garden at Fisher House Boston.
“The Fisher House Healing Garden has been designed as an oasis of safety and hope. The design attempts to create a reflective space where people may sink into the Open Embrace of the earth and the energies of plants to find quiet support and peaceful rest,” explains Monique Allen, owner of The Garden Continuum. “The healing power of plants and gardens has been well documented, while continuing to be elusive to logical thinking. It isn't necessary to understand why, it is only necessary that the space is made available, so that the healing may be made possible. The Garden Continuum was thrilled to be honored with the request to design and build a healing garden for the Fisher House Boston.”
