Tribute & Memorial Program

The beauty and serenity of Holden Forests & Gardens offer a unique opportunity to pay tribute to a loved one, commemorate a milestone, or honor a friend.

Whether it’s a special message listed in our virtual garden that the recipient will be able to see, or a bench nestled in the perfect spot to commemorate a love one who has passed, tributes can mark all life’s important moments:

  • Birthdays
  • Marriages
  • Anniversaries
  • Graduations
  • Retirements
  • Memorials
