Entryways of Civility, Pathways of Kindness: A Reflection and Social Justice Garden on the Campus of Southern Connecticut University in New Haven, CT. Originally conceived to celebrate the lives and lights of four women Alumnae of Southern Connecticut State University who were killed while trying to protect the students in their care during the course of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT in 2012. In honor of the intentions of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend and the power of gardens to make the world a better place, we hear more about this new and powerful garden on Cultivating Place this week.
