Since 1966 when the Rowayton Library moved to the new Community Center at 33 Highland Avenue, the Rowayton Gardeners have held most of the club meetings and events there. The members have been enhancing the garden beds and flagpole area.
A major restoration project by the Club began in 1999 to restore the grounds to the grandeur the property once had and continues to the present day. Seven beds including the raised rose garden, flagpole garden, long field border, library window, courtyard planter and all beds surrounding the building have been planted by the Gardeners. Maintenance is done by Club members in group work sessions. Workshops covering pruning, propagation and plant identification are held using these gardens for hands-on learning to members and the community.
