Our World: Your Call (Fracking Waste in CT)

Rowayton Library and Rowayton Gardeners are joining forces to offer a new series on local environmental issues and how our actions can change the future for our community. Our first program on May 2nd, from 7 to 8:30 pm will address the issues that fracking waste could soon pose for Connecticut.  Although we have no oil or natural gas reserves within our borders, several neighboring states do and use the fracking process.  They are currently prohibited from transporting their wastes across our borders, but that legal protection will end in July when Connecticut’s temporary moratorium expires.Continue reading

Perennials Needed for the Spring Market

All members should take a look at the list of plants we are seeking for our plant sale at the 2018 Spring Market on May 19th.  Tammy Langalis has noted them down in categories (see below) – and if you have some to share, you may offer your yard up for a “dig” and a team of Gardeners will arrive when you can oversee their efforts to divide and pot them up.  Alternately, you may want to dig some yourself – we are looking for 6” plastic pots of each and Tammy or Betsy Bain will be glad to give directions about digging, potting, identification and delivery ore even sign your yard up for a dig – just give either a call.  All members are required to donate 5 or more perennial plants (purchased or from their own yards) to the sale so that we can continue to have one of the most sought-after collections in the county.  See the list that follows and take a look in your own beds to see what needs dividing or removal..
