THE FRIENDS INVITE YOU TOPLANT A GARDEN!
In 2019 the FOMH began a volunteer program to restore and replant 25 historic cradle graves. Las year more than 100 volunteers planted 80 such graves! During the summer of 2020 another 70 cradle graves were discovered in various states of repair. Currently 29 of these have been restored and are now available for planting.
Interested garden clubs and individuals can sign up to become Grave Gardeners by emailing email@example.com to schedule a date and time to meet at the cemetery and select a grave to adopt.
Cradle Grave Gardeners commit to tending their assigned graves throughout the entire growing season (May0November). This includes purchasing and planting flowers, and then keeping the garden watered and weeded.
