On Sunday, December 11th (from noon to 3 pm), The Rowayton Gardeners  will join forces with the Rowayton Civic Association to sell the trees from the annual Nativity Pageant. Six and a half to eight feet tall, beautifully shaped and full, these trees are a steal at $35 each.  All proceeds go to support the community efforts of the two organizations, so your purchase of one or more will not only look good…it will DO good things for our town.

More than 100 young and creative pumpkin carvers took part in our 2016 Carve-A-Thon event.  Thanks to volunteers and parents – and in spite of the less than perfect weather, the two days of carving and the Pumpkin Stroll that followed were clearly a big success.  Take a look at some of the photos of this magical happening…
