Thanks to all who participated in the jointly sponsored environmental program at the Community Center last week! More than 70 attended the forum and their comments were universally complimentary. It was a time for learning and sharing about updates to the 3 R’s of decades ago. Norwalk’s recent revision of recycling rules was distributed and discussed, as were developments in surrounding communities and in local and neighboring school systems where “zero waste” is more than a buzz phrase. Thanks to our partners, Rowayton Library and Norwalk Land Trust – and particularly to Marny Smith, Melissa Yurechko and Lisa Shanahan! Remember to skip the straw and support a ban on plastic bags – and maybe even start composting with curbside pickups…we all will benefit.

Our Christmas Market this year will be held on Saturday, December 1st. In preparation for the Market, Chair Frani Taylor will conduct several workshops (starting on November 9th) to create the marvelous items we will offer for sale.

Though we didn’t win a prize, the terrific compliments and stream of those coming back for 2nd & 3rd tastes, we represented the Gardeners well. Thanks to Bob, Lynn, Kathy, Kevin, Michael & Petrea, Michele, Nicole and Gary for being part of the effort! See the slide show…Continue reading
