List of plants growing in the garden

In the Spring of 2017, the MASTER GARDENER(sm) volunteers of Vance and Warren Counties broke ground on a garden at the Vance County Regional Farmers Market in Henderson. After many months of hard work, on June 12, 2019, the garden was dedicated in memory of members of our group who have passed on.

This Memorial Garden utilizes good performing plants that are drought tolerant and which can be grown with minimal pest issues. There is also an emphasis on plants that attract and/or provide habitat for beneficial insects (e.g. pollinators and predators), as well as plants that are native to Piedmont North Carolina. We invite you to visit this special place of beauty, learning, reflection and peace.

Overall view of the garden.

The garden would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, nor without generous contributions from many organizations and individuals.

The garden is dedicated to the memory of the following individuals, who have passed on after making noteworthy contributions to the community through the Master Gardener program: Beverly Allen, Sylvia Fletcher, Robert Duke, Shirley Heidt, Zella Knight, Peggy Polak, Lucille Quinitchette, Phil Wilson, Carl Shafer and Betty Zielstorf.
