Spiral Garden and Lawn
The spiral garden is a very special place of beauty and a setting for spiritual renewal. The garden is based on a garden created by a special environmentalist, Eleanore Milardo originally located in Middletown, Connecticut. After her death, the garden was recreated behind the meetinghouse. This special garden is in the shape of a spiral telling the story of the Universe and our connectedness to all life. Inhabited by mostly native plants, this outdoor space is a place where one can walk the spiral as well as sit and find peace and quiet in nature.
The spiral garden and large lawn are a perfect place for weddings, outdoor picnics, parties and lawn games.
