Garden Giving

The Radiology Healing Gardens were established in 2000 to help meet the wellness needs of our community. Every day, this secret garden on campus is frequented by many visitors including students unwinding after exams, employees de-stressing during downtime, and patients awaiting answers. If you have not done so already, please make a visit! Then consider supporting our beautiful gardens to help us continue to provide this calming space to all who discover it, below are opportunities to do so.

Long Term Garden Support - As you can imagine, daily maintenance and care of the gardens is a significant undertaking.  We invite you to consider a larger one-time gift or monthly ongoing gift that helps sustain continual care of the gardens.  

Radiology Healing Gardens Infrastructure Improvements - Due to the current age of the arbors and benches in the garden, they are in desperate need of a spruce up. Any funds raised will allow us to bring in local, skilled craftsmen to replace or repair worn components of garden structures. This will preserve the integrity of the garden for years to come.

Shop.msu.edu - Just in time for the holidays, we've partnered with shop.msu.edu to bring you unique items designed by Radiology staff.  You can support the gardens and show your appreciation for gardening at the same time.  A wonderful gift for yourself or a fellow gardner.  

The Garden Shop - When the garden staff is available and the weather is cooperative, you might find The Garden Shoppe open!  A few of the items you might find in the shop are shown below.  When you visit, there might be different things - but rest assured, the items are made from vines/flowers in the garden or hand-painted by garden staff.  Truly unique, one-of-a-kind, garden treasures!  Suggested minimum donations are listed, proceeds from The Garden Shop help support garden maintenance and improvements.
