2023 Greenspace Report

The Botanical Garden of Healing Dedicated to the Victims of Gun Violence is a powerful place in New Haven. The space is not only beautiful but also invokes a special feeling of serenity and strength. This summer, 37 individual volunteers worked together to maintain the garden through planting, weeding, mulching, and picking up trash. Those who visited the garden not only contributed to stewarding the space, but also formed new relationships with each other.
