UNION — Clearly labeled plants will soon be the standard at the Piedmont Physic Garden (PPG) thanks to a $3,500 corporate gift from Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System.
The gift, given earlier this spring, will allow PPG to add consistent botanical labeling throughout the garden. The donation will also provide an informational plant booklet, as well as other printed educational materials.
“Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System is pleased to be a part of the Piedmont Physic Garden and further our partnership with the people of Union County,” said Kristy Caradori, executive director of the Spartanburg Regional Foundation. “The garden promotes healthy activity and education, which ties in with our mission of community health.”
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System is an integrated healthcare delivery system that provides care from birth through the senior years in Spartanburg, Cherokee, Greenville and Union counties in South Carolina, and Polk and Rutherford counties in North Carolina.
“We are incredibly grateful to Spartanburg Regional for their generous support of PPG,” said PPG board member Coie Switzer. “This is a true community partnership that brings visual enhancements and improves our ability to provide education and awareness to our visitors.”
Founded in 2014, the Piedmont Physic Garden is a nonprofit botanical garden in Union. PPG was Inspired by London’s Chelsea Physic Garden with the mission of exhibiting the medicinal, cultural, economic and environmental importance of plants to the people of Union County and the surrounding Piedmont region of South Carolina.
