Rowayton Gardeners have maintained, restored and improved the berm gardens along the Bayley Beach’s parking lot for years. We’ve also tended containers, planted a flagpole garden and added screening trees and grasses plantings along the Roton Point fence. This year, we are using our funds to build a proper stone surround for the Bayley flagpole (in July/August) and to establish a xeriscape garden on the largest berm (right now!).

As you may have read in The Hour, 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! Buy yours here today!Continue reading
Thanks to our civic beautification program, many public gardens around Rowayton are regularly maintained and improved. Recently, Frani Taylor and Ellen Duggins did a significant spruce up of the triangle on Roton Avenue at the end of the Sammis Street Bridge. Thanks, Rowayton Gardeners, for helping to make Rowayton a special place to live and visit!
