Veterans Serenity Garden

VA Serenity Garden RevisedThe Cincinnati Horticultural Society is honored to be  supporting Cincinnati VA Medical Center in their efforts to  create the Veterans Serenity Garden at the new residential  care facility at the VA.  Thanks to our generous friends  who attended our October event, From Field to Fork: An Autumn Celebration, CHS was able to make a significant donation to the Veterans Serenity Garden.

We encourage you to show your appreciation of our veterans now by purchasing engraved tribute bricks that will be an integral part of the garden design. As gardeners, we know the peaceful and healing nature of a garden.  How wonderful to be able to provide solace for our Veterans and honor a loved one with a special brick in a very special place.  The bricks can be engraved with a name or a message and come in three sizes for $35, $70 or $1,000.  To order your brick click on the links below and follow the instructions on the form.  If you have questions, please contact Ben Staubach 513-941-6868
