Commemorative Giving

Members of the community may wish to recognize and remember friends and loved ones in this beautiful garden setting. A limited number of opportunities exist for funding memorial and other garden elements. HCLS encourages memorial donations in any amount to the garden maintenance fund, so that the entire community can continue to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the garden.

A small plaque honoring the person being remembered and/or the donor will be installed on or near certain memorial features.


Artistic elements and themed garden planting areas (i.e. pond area, heron sculpture fountain, conifer garden, sensory garden)
Memorial benches and other garden furniture
Adopt-A-Tree (funding the care and maintenance of a tree already existing in the garden)
