The outdoor garden commences with an inviting arch brimming with Breonna's favorite colors and a QR-code for participants to scan and enter the augmented reality experience.
The virtual garden will begin to grow around the participant, with a beautiful monument for Breonna, a hologram of Ju'Niyah Palmer, Breonna's sister, and an opportunity to record your own message to a lost loved one.
