Kathy Connolly is a terrific asset to the Times newspapers. Her bimonthly column, Green & Growing, is a favorite of readers. A hands-in-the-dirt landscape and garden designer, she happily shares her ideas, tips and expertise. Anyone with an interest in the earth should regularly read Connolly’s columns.
Kathy put in countless hours planning and designing the buffer, selecting and ordering plants—all CT natives—and supervising the site preparation and planting by community volunteers. Kathy turned what project partners imagined would be a functional vegetated buffer into a fabulous work of landscape art.Jane Brawerman, Executive Director CT River Coastal Conservation District, Middletown, CT
