Hidden gardens of Middlebury-1236 color.jpg

The success of any garden is measured by the pleasure it brings to the people who use it. And, when many people use a garden, there is much pleasure to go around.

Hidden behind the walls of the Helen Porter Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Middlebury is a garden that is enjoyed by hundreds of people in sundry ways. It is a garden that serves the entire Helen Porter community — not only the residents and their visitors, but also the many staff and volunteers associated with the nursing home.

The grant is actually a three-year extension in funding for which WomenSafe first successfully applied through the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Violence Against Women back in 2007. It is money the DOJ has earmarked for rural communities needing help in combatting crimes against women — including dating violence and stalking.

And this is how he spent his time.
