Memorial Garden options

The Landscape Committee is planning a memorial garden area to remember deceased members and friends here at CVUU and is soliciting your feedback on possible features of this plan. It is currently envisioned between the driveway into the property and the bushes which edge the parking lot area with access via the wooden ramp. The purpose of the garden area is to provide a place for end of life rituals, a place to visit, remember and celebrate loved ones, a place to honor our connection with the past and a place for meditation and reflection amidst the beauty of nature. Participants may elect to specifically remember their loved ones in a variety of ways.  Individual features would be at the expense of family members or friends, but options will vary in cost.  General area features such as pathways, fencing for privacy, or a water feature would be supplied by CVUU at no additional cost to individuals.

Here are some visual examples for the various options for consideration:
