Root Center Manchester’s Memorial Garden
A tranquil Memorial Garden for reflecting and remembering
We are creating a beautiful and serene sanctuary for the family and friends of overdose victims to reflect, honor, and remember loved ones lost to substance use. With the Root Center logo as inspiration, the space was designed in an array of colors and distinctive spaces to offer visitors a holistic spot for spiritual renewal. The garden opened to the public on August 31st, 2022.
