Grace Academy

Grace Academy Summer Student Garden Program
Students at Grace Academy maintain learning gardens on the school grounds in Hartford, Connecticut. Cynthia assisted with the design of the gardens, directed the initial plantings and helped with advice and guidance on the upkeep. Sunflowers, Kale, Strawberries and more are cared for by the Garden Club during the growing season.

Grace Academy is an independent school dedicated to providing a quality, tuition-free education to girls of all faiths from low-income families residing in Hartford’s inner city neighborhoods. They work to inspire in students a love of learning, an awareness of their own interests and ideas, a fundamental understanding of culture, and an abiding sense of responsibility to their community.

World Wide Labyrinth Day - First Saturday in May
Cynthia has facilitated labyrinth walks at Billings Forge Community Works, celebrating the opening of their community gardens and World Wide Labyrinth Day.

Pictured below is the 2010 walk - it was a wonderful experience! Our portable labyrinth is a 32-foot painted canvas created by local Hartford artists under the loving guidance of Cynthia.
