The Fayetteville Memory Garden annual GreenUp event
The Fayetteville Memory Garden is a beautiful space located in Central New York where individuals can honor and memorialize their loved one(s) in a reflective setting. Founder Rachael Ristau explains her motivation for establishing the space:
"After my father passed when I was twelve, I went through a time in my life when I felt very alone. Because of this experience, I realized that no one can take away the pain that comes after losing someone, but I could try and make it an easier journey to travel for others."
