Pesticide-Free Rowayton

As you may have read in The Hour last week, The Rowayton Gardeners have launched an environmental initiative for our community! Spearheaded by Priscilla Feral, the objective of the drive is to let Rowayton homeowners know how important (and easy!) it is to “go organic” when feeding and treating our lawns and gardens. Join us as we replace those yellow warning signs that signal chemical applications that endanger pets, insects and humans with our “pesticide-free bee” signs!  Contact Priscilla at feral@friendsofanimals.org for more information or to purchase ($11) your sign.  Note that all our District properties are already pesticide-free!
