Never Forget Garden Update - August 12, 2022

1 year ago

Thank you for supporting the Society with the Never Forget Garden Project.

The Never Forget Garden Project has a new email address. We decided to create a consolidated email for information sharing after we brought on two volunteers to help collect data on NFGs across the US and overseas. We hope that you save this as your primary email to reach out to us at:

The NFG Journal is under development now and should be released soon. Your stories and photos will be used in this journal and on various social media platforms. We will not share your personal contact information unless you authorize it.

Our data collection is going well, but we still need to gather more from everybody on this email. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY RESPONDED WITH THE INFORMATION AND PHOTOS PLEASE DISREGARD.

When you can, please respond to this email and confirm the following information (don't forget to share some photos):

  1. NFG Location (City and State) - also add if located at a specific community location.
  2. NFG name of Point of Contact.
  3. Email address for Point of Contact.
  4. Date NFG was planted or dedicated.
  5. Does your NFG have the Niphtoes Rose planted?
  6. What zone are you in?
  7. Is the NFG sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) or another organization?
  8. What is planted in your NFG and what is the story behind it?

If you planned or assisted with multiple NFGs, please provide the above information on each.

If you know of someone who has a NFG, please share this email with them.

Thank you for taking the time to help this project continue to grow.
