Phase I of the Freedom Garden is now complete. We have created a botanical garden where flowers and plants will consistently bloom throughout the seasons and create a habitat for butterflies and bees. Phase II of the Freedom Garden, will showcase an honorarium wall with your memorialized bricks. The bricks pay tribute to the stories of the Veterans who made a difference in the lives of others.
