BETA Collaborates with the Laura’s Garden Foundation

April 15, 2022

Established in 2021, the Laura’s Garden Foundation honors the life and legacy of Laura Kirsche Hart – a beloved wife, mother of three, elementary school teacher, and member of the Wethersfield, CT community who unexpectedly passed away last year. A cancer survivor, Laura was known for her courage and grace, and she loved spending time with her family at Standish Park in Old Wethersfield, CT.

With a personal connection to Laura and the family she leaves behind, BETA is honored to collaborate with the foundation and donate landscape architecture services to provide a blueprint for Laura’s Garden, a nautilus-shaped memorial garden that will serve as a tranquil gathering place in the park for friends, family, and community members. The garden will feature granite benches with wood inlays, seasonal plants, a flowering tree, and a small water fountain with a river stone basin to celebrate the historic beauty of the community and to personify the strength and joy of Laura.
