Veterans’ Memory Garden

The Cave Creek Museum is proud to announce the area in front of the Museum will be transformed into Cave Creek’s Veterans’ Memory Garden, with six distinct areas dedicated to each military branch and a seventh exclusively for Cave Creek veterans. This project, designed by landscape designer Marc Viator, is a combined endeavor of the Cave Creek Museum staff, Board of Directors and Dream Team, American Legion Post 34, and the Black Mountain Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution. Master Gardener Marcia D’Alessandro will oversee the creation of each area’s individual garden.

The Veterans’ Memory Garden will be unique as a living and constantly evolving experiential garden. Set in a peaceful environment on the grounds of the Cave Creek Museum, the Veterans’ Memory Garden will reflect what is important to know and remember about our veterans. We will pair each participating veteran with a master artist to create a collaborative art piece which will be prominently displayed. These collaborations will continue over time creating an eternally evolving and changing garden as new collaborations and memories are introduced.

We invite our members and community to join us in this historic and worthy endeavor with either a financial donation or by providing support by claiming one of the tasks on our “Need” List. You will feel pride in knowing your contribution in one of these ways will intrinsically link you forever to the success of this heart-warming and patriotic endeavor.
