125th Legacy Project – Memorial Garden

Not a gardening project…..(at least not yet)

The Memorial Garden is a space where we will honour those who have passed on. There are many ways to create this type of space of some of the design elements we will explore include the following:

  • Will we have a scatter garden area for ashes?
  • Will there be small memorial plaques for names and dates or not?
  • Will we have a “Memorial” book to create a history?
  • Will this space be for pets as well as people?
  • Should the space be open for anyone or just people who are members or active in the Church?
  • Will we have a space to sit in the garden area?
  • Should we have some kind of UU art or sculpture like an outdoor chalice?
  • What are the various types of operating models for memorial gardens so as to be self-funding for care and upkeep?
