Private Garden Tour
Enjoy a personal tour of the Remembrance Garden at Southern CT State University along with lunch hosted by NHSO's Dan Camenga and SCSU Faculty member Bill Faraclas.
From the fall of 2016 until the dedication of the garden on May 4, 2018, Dan and Bill served as the co-leads of the volunteer Reflection Garden Council. The Council was composed of a group of students, staff, faculty, and community members. Together, they led the planning, visioning, fundraising, and installation on behalf of the University in order to complete the 2013 vision of establishing a memorial to the four Southern alumnae killed during the Sandy Hook tragedy (4 out of the 6 adults were members of the SCSU community). The beautiful garden features a one-of-a-kind 10 ft tall wooden sculpture built by the world renowned Brooklin Boat Yard in Brooklin, Maine. The garden's design was created by the Julie Moir Messervy Design Studio, owned and led by Julie Moir Messervy who worked with Yo Yo Ma in 1998 to create the Music Garden located at Toronto's Harborfront.
The tour will be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time for the buyer and tour guides and must be redeemed by 11/1/2019. Join Dan and Bill for a unique tour of the Remembrance Garden, New Haven's newest public garden space and discover interesting links between music and public gardens!
