In honor of Father’s Day, here’s an article that my dad sent me from the Hartford Courant about Growing Stronger, Inc., a non-profit organization in Willimantic, CT. This mentoring and service program “takes young women who are in recovery or fresh out of jail and trains them in the art of landscaping and gardening in the overgrown gardens of women unable to manage on their own because of age or illness.” Sounds pretty great. Read more about it, and see a few more pictures and a short video clip, at courant.com: “Growing Stronger: Program Cultivates People for Caring for Shrubs, Yards,” by Susan Campbell. Thanks, Benjamin!
