The Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens

Recently, Sr. Rosemarie Greco and Sr. Jo-Ann Iannotti were part of a dedication of The Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens in Washington, CT.  This new site was dedicated to the memory of Judy Black, a resident of Washington, and a recent collaborator with us at Wisdom House.  Judy died of cancer on November 15, 2015.

In 2014, Judy, along with Carolyn Setlow, also of Washington, CT, collaborated with us on sustainability program titled, "Food, Glorious Food," where we explored the topic of eating with compassion and intention. This was an interfaith program supported by the Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life and Wisdom House.
