Groundbreaking was held recently for a Tribute Garden at Lambs Farm.
The idea for the Tribute Garden sprouted during the organization's 50th anniversary celebration year as a way to enhance the Lambs Farm campus and to serve as an ongoing fundraising endeavor for Lambs Farm.
It also is meant as a natural bridge between the public and private areas of the campus on Rockland Road, near the Tri-State Tollway in Green Oaks, and will provide an opportunity to honor and memorialize loved ones.
The Tribute Garden has been designed to provide a tranquil space for clients as well as visitors to sit, read, enjoy Lambs Lake, or simply relax. There are numerous naming opportunities at levels beginning at $500.
The garden will showcase wild grasses, a butterfly garden, a decorative brick wall, water features and more.
