Philadelphia - World Wide Stereo has helped create a new rooftop garden at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The independent specialty dealer contributed A/V equipment and technical support to the Sea Garden at the Seashore House, an interactive garden for patients and families on the third-floor rooftop play deck of the hospital's Children's Seashore House.

World Wide Stereo collaborated with Groundswell Design Group, an acclaimed landscape build and design firm, and a team from Children's Hospital, to bring the rooftop garden to life. The design was inspired by the original Seashore House, with the goal of bringing the calm of the sand and the sea to patients and families.

In addition to providing a tranquil space, the garden will offer ongoing educational programs for patients and families that will include everything from alphabet gardening and story-telling to nutrition and healthy eating.

World Wide Stereo president/founder Robert Cole said, "It is with great pleasure that World Wide Stereo and its partners were able to participate in this incredible project that will inspire and entertain patients and their families who come to the Seashore House to heal and rehabilitate. We are proud to be a part of this wonderful project, and it is our hope that our contribution to the garden will offer a place where patients and families can be invigorated and also find peace."
