Be sure to stop by the Potting Shed often in the next few weeks to see the how our new “educational garden patch” develops! There will be lots of opportunities to help as well. The week of June 30th, the Sixth Taxing District arranged to have several trees next to the greenhouse removed to provide the essential sunlight to make our garden grow. The work was done by arborist Larry Brown and overseen by Jason O’Donnell and Tory Woodruff.
The following weeks (July 7th to 17th), thanks to a generous donation from the Rowayton Civic Association added to the proceeds from some of our other fundraising efforts, the garden was installed. As soon as the garden installation is complete, you can help plant the patch with lots of veggies. If you would like to be on the planting team, please email I want to help plant the new garden – there is room and work for all! The Patch will provide not only produce, but also a great base for our garden-based workshops and camp sessions. What a terrific community collaboration and asset this will be.
