CONNECTICUT---With its many parts arranged to create a powerful whole that presents shifting perspectives of its surroundings, “Double Glass River” mirrors not only its setting but the multipronged mission of that setting, Grace Farms. Grace Farms Foundation opened the 80-acre preserve in New Canaan to the public last month, in one of its initiatives aimed at encouraging visitors to experience nature, foster community, explore faith, pursue justice and encounter the arts.
