Event description

Description

Elmwood invites local gardeners to participate in the inaugural year of Cradle Gardening in the cemetery. If you love Elmwood Cemetery and are passionate about gardening, then this program is for you. Help bring flowers back to the oldest active garden-style cemetery in Memphis!

What are cradles? These oblong-shaped marble 'flower beds' were installed in the cemetery by the hundreds many years ago. They've remained empty for up to a century, in some cases.

We'll get started at 10 am! At this meeting, Elmwood staff and volunteers will capture your information, go over the specifics of the program, and assign out specifically-selected cradles. Gardeners will be welcome to begin as soon as they like.

To participate in this program, Elmwood highly recommends partnering with 1 or 2 of your knowledgeable, trusted gardening friends. Sharing the responsibility of an assigned area is the name of the game. Elmwood staff can assign partnerships, if needed.

There is no fee to participate in this volunteer-based program. Volunteers will be asked to donate plants and use personal supplies.

Please email historian@elmwoodcemetery.org to save your seat at this meeting.

Please also note:

Elmwood Cemetery can only accept a VERY limited number of volunteer gardeners in this class and space is both coveted and limited. Thank you for your interest in beautifying Elmwood Cemetery!
