A New Kind of Community Garden #HOPEGROWSHERE

Whether you’ve been out of a walk or running errands through Downtown Tacoma, you may have noticed many newly installed window displays. Each containing floral artwork accompanied with a simple message, Hope Grows Here.

Staying home in an effort to fight the current global health crisis is important, but isolation can be difficult for many individuals. This is why MOG and many other establishments have come together, with the support of MultiCare, to bring messages of hope during this unprecedented time.

MultiCare describes this initiative as:

“For the past several weeks, we have seen local artists and businesses create dozens of window gardens throughout our cities and neighborhoods in order to spread hope and remind each other that we’re all in this together. These window gardens are collages of flowers with words of hope and words of appreciation for health care and essential workers. Many community members have joined by decorating their own windows at home.

We hope these flowers remind you that although you may be experiencing physical or emotional isolation, you are not alone. We’re all in this together.”

Visit MultiCare’s page to view their gallery of #HOPEGROWSHERE window art, volunteer and donation opportunities, or how you can support healthcare workers with words of encouragement. Let the art lead the way to help those in need. We are in this together.
