G-O2™ Living Wall of Hope
Plant Connection had the wonderful privilege and honor to create a living wall at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, Jerome L. Greene Family Center in Manhattan. Hope Lodge offers cancer patients lodging at no cost, allowing them to focus on healing and recovering. A nurturing, home-like environment is provided where patients can retreat to private rooms or bond with others in community spaces.
The outdoor terrace at Hope Lodge - NYC
There are many amenities for guests including a meditation space, lounge, library, and an outdoor terrace. Hope Lodge wanted to expand on the outdoor space and provide its guests the opportunity to connect with nature for therapeutic benefits. Beautiful outdoor planters and furnishings currently allow patients to enjoy some relaxation and reflection in the open air.
Hope Lodge felt that the addition of a living wall would enhance the space and further aid in creating a peaceful communal area. Additionally, when individuals are sitting inside the large lounge area, they have tranquil views outside to the terrace and living wall.
Due to location of the living wall on the terrace, a freestanding unit was specially designed and manufactured to display and support it. The green wall measures 10' x 10' and stands 3' off the ground. An automatic irrigation system is built within the armature to ensure the plants receive adequate water.

Thanks to their generous support, the wall was dedicated by PNC, who, along with Plant Connection, helped to make it a forever living wall of hope.
