Current Volunteer Opportunities for Members

The Rowayton Gardeners Club thrives on member participation. Take a look below at upcoming needs and get involved! It’s easy to fulfill your membership requirements and there are all sorts of ways to help:LIBRARY FLOWERS (Judy Heilmann)

For many years, the Rowayton Gardners have provided the Rowayton Library with a plant (on loan) or arrangement of flowers for it’s circulation desk.  Currently we are in need of volunteers to provide something nice for 11/19, 12/17 or 1/7
Please email Kathy Leeds (kcleeds@gmail.com) if you can take responsibility for one of these dates.

The Rowayton Gardeners Carvathon  at the Potting Shed is a Rowayton tradition!
