Beautiful

Stunning

Our hearts are heavy at this time and we stand in solidarity with those suffering from racism and injustice.

During the pandemic, we have seen the best of human nature in our own community as people truly extended themselves. We have received amazing generosity and support from many neighbors to our Covid-19 Emergency Fund. People have been coming to Van Vleck Gardens to reflect on loss and to find peace in such a chaotic time. As connected and insulated as we feel by all that recent goodwill, we cannot ignore the violence and injustice playing out across our nation towards African Americans. This hatred has no place here.

The Montclair Foundation/Van Vleck House & Gardens stands in solidarity with the Black community protesting against racism, injustice, inequities and seeking accountability. We reject racism and hope to be a source of support and comfort to our brothers and sisters in this fight.

Charles D. Fischer
Executive Director
The Montclair Foundation/Van Vleck House & Gardens

Is there an easy way to tell which (if any) are natives? We’re trying to introduce some native plants to our garden and if we could contribute to your fundraiser while doing so, it would be a win/win! Thanks!
