Botanical Garden of Healing

The New Haven Botanical Garden of Healing Dedicated to Victims of Gun Violence was created by the mothers of victims of gun violence as a special place to remember their loved ones. The garden is a place of hope and healing on Valley Street in New Haven, CT. With each new tree and flower planted, the mothers are taking positive action to build public awareness of the magnitude of the problem of gun violence and invest in the the future of our community. 

The mothers invite you to participate: 

1) Sign up to receive email updates on the garden if you are not already on our email list.

2) Volunteer in the garden on Saturdays 9 am- 12 pm in the summer beginning May 20 and through the fall.

3) Register to attend the Annual Day of Remembrance on June 8, 2024.
