Memorial Garden Beautification Event


North Carolina Victim Assistance Network (NCVAN)

What You'll Do:

Volunteers needed for a garden beautification event in a crime victims' memorial garden. No prior gardening experience is necessary.

This opportunity has passed.


Five times a year, NCVAN (North Carolina Victim Assistance Network) holds garden beautification events in our Victims’ Voices Silent No More Crime Victim Memorial Garden. The NCVAN staff invites anyone interested to join us, whether as a volunteer to help or simply to watch and witness, as many (especially including the loved-ones of homicide victims), find it meaningful and beneficial on their life journey.

There is no prior gardening experience necessary.

At each event, Homewood Nursery donates all the flowers, plants, and materials; they also donate a horticultural expert, Tina Mast, to plan the garden arrangement for each event as well as to direct the actual planting process that day. Volunteers and some NCVAN staff members are involved at each event.
