The Gardens

The goal of "Remember Me" Rose Garden is to create three gardens, one each in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania, on or near the sites of each attack. It is important that each location is equally represented in our history.

New York City

"Remember Me" Rose Garden was accepted by the New York City Parks & Recreation Department in February, 2002. We are proud to be in partnership with the NY Parks & Recreation Department and the NY Restoration Project who are providing space for the two test plots planted on April 27, 2006 in New York. We continue to work with those involved to find an appropriate location for the Garden.

Washington, DC

"Remember Me" Rose Garden was accepted by Washington, D.C. Parks and Recreation in June, 2002. The test plot of roses for Washington D.C. will be planted at Kensington Volunteer Fire Station in November 28, 2005. We are working with various agencies and groups to determine the site for the main Garden.

Shade Township - Somerset County, PA.

The first test plot of roses planted on April 24, 2004 in Shade Township, PA., has completed its second year and has flourished. The roses bloom into November. When the roses are in bloom, they are often cut and taken to the Flight 93 Temporary Memorial. "Remember Me" Rose Garden was accepted by the Flight 93 Family Board on April 4th, 2006. Information regarding the garden site is listed under "Remember Me" Rose Garden - Flight 93.

A perpetual Maintenance Fund has been created to support and maintain each of the three Gardens. To finance this fund, nine roses will be named in honor of the victims of September 11, 2001, a donation from the sale of each rose will be directed to the Maintenance Fund.
