In times like these, it's important for people to know where they can go for comfort and solace. The 50 Chumasero Memorial Garden is one such place. It's not only a garden, it's a SANCTUARY.
View the video and you will see why.
An Easter Egg Hunt will take place on the weekend of April 11 (we'll post another diary if we can to show the results). It is only one of the events the Garden holds annually, but this event is special: it can help people celebrate Easter in a safe space and allow them to get out of the house without worry.
Not all residential gardens are able to submit to the shelter-in-place guidelines, but if you can, please open up your garden to your neighbors:
1. Make sure that the garden has seating placed at least 6 feet apart.
2. Post times that the garden will be open so that you can monitor it.
3. Provide a trash receptacle in case people bring refreshments.
4. Post fliers ( or use social media like Nextdoor)
5. Try to make the garden as meditative as possible (win d chimes help)
6. Take comfort in knowing that you'll be providing comfort for others.
If possible, get feedback from your neighbors regarding opening up your garden.
If nothing else, it's worth a try. Your friends and neighbors will appreciate the effort and know that your trying to help them cope.
