Garden Club seeks donations to renovate the Lower Veterans Memorial Garden

PLEASE DONATE

The Garden Club of Norfolk is seeking donations to complete their goal of $4,400 to renovate the Lower Veterans Memorial Garden at the Norfolk Town Cemetery. Donations can be made online in memory of or in honor of a loved one or someone who served our country.

Only $227.70 more to reach our GOAL! 

Thank You to these organizations and donors for their support.

In September, the Garden Club of Norfolk received a $750.00 Civic Development Grant from the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts for renovating the Lower Veterans Memorial Gardens at the Norfolk Town Cemetery. The gardens are in the Veterans section of the historic 1745 Norfolk Cemetery located at Main and Seekonk Streets in Norfolk, MA.

The club hopes to build a thriving native plant garden in memory of those who served our country. Their garden proposal is for a low-maintenance plan that includes native shrubs, grasses, and perennials. Purchase of plant materials and all work will be performed by club members. As well as the Grant, the Garden Club of Norfolk has received support from many local partners, including the Norfolk DPW, Norfolk American Legion Post 335, the Norfolk Historical Commission, and individual donations.

Learn more about the garden – its history and renovations plans.

Lower Veterans Gardens are the two areas presently covered by mulch to the left and right of the granite steps. Total area is 900 sq. feet.


Happy New Gardening Year
