Windham Grows is a business hatchery (sometimes called a business accelerator). We are a project within Strolling of the Heifers. We operate on the mantra that good business makes good community, and good community makes good business. As such, we help food and agriculture businesses start and scale in a way that is good for the entrepreneurs, good for the community and good for the environment.

Cindy Delgatto is the Program Manager for Windham Grows where she shares her deep community roots and genuine belief in the power of relationships. Cindy is a multifaceted professional who has enjoyed the diversity and creativity of working in hospitality and food industries, shared the passion for craftsmanship in the wine and spirits business and most recently has served as a regional workforce developer for individuals with barriers to employment. One common thread is her commitment to excellence in service and a mission to create connected spaces for people and businesses to thrive. Cindy is a proud member of the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary and serves on the Executive Board of the Brattleboro Chamber of Commerce. Originally from the Catskill Mountains, Cindy and her husband Leonard happily call Brattleboro home and when she is not organizing, planning or collaborating in her community she is spending time with her three grown children, one very spoiled dog, in her vintage camper exploring new places or grounded in her garden.
