An excellent example of these efforts is the Reflection Garden at the ThedaCare Riverside Medical Center in Waupaca, designed and built, in part, by students in FVTC’s Horticulture Club. In one day, club members and other Horticulture students joined about 80 community volunteers to complete a 75-by-276-foot garden featuring five patios, three raised plant beds, two walls with built-in benches, and more. “I call it a healing garden because it provides a nurturing environment for anyone who needs to take some time away from the hospital,” says Beard.
Students from the Horticulture program and club served as team leaders for most of the projects, and they continue to work on enhancing the garden for the Waupaca community. Beard says his students are already working on a fencing project for the garden to be completed this spring.
Student groups heal the community in other ways, too. Each year, volunteers from the FVTC Student Nurses Association (SNA) lend a hand at the Community First Fox Cities Marathon. “I take about eighteen to twenty students to the marathon,” says nursing instructor and SNA advisor Peggy Taylor. “Half of them work the medical pavilion by the finish line, and the other students staff the medical tent.”
