Details:

Several times a year, NCVAN (North Carolina Victim Assistance Network) holds garden beautification events in our Victims’ Voices Silent No More Crime Victim Memorial Garden. NCVAN invites anyone interested in volunteering to join us, especially including the loved-ones of homicide victims as they 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.
