Seed of Hope

At a 9/11 memorial in Pennsylvania, New York landscape designer David Kemp creates a healing garden that has the power to transform many lives.

Summary: David Kamp was a New York landscape architect with a high profile job and a great future, who worked on rewarding projects like the Australian Parliament House. But in the 1990s he left all of this behind to start his own business dedicated to the creation of restorative gardens which he believes in passionately. David contends that nature has significant therapeutic qualities and is essential to health and well-being. Today, he is applying this attitude to all of his projects including a 9/11 memorial in Pennsylvania, which is helping to restore an entire community
