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 its circulation desk. Contact Judy Heilman if you are willing to bring something in and she will find you a date.

HOSPITALITY (Sally Tepas and Cathy Konstantin)

Our Annual Meeting and Luncheon on June 13th is a wonderful time to celebrate what Rowayton Gardeners have done during the year, to elect officers and approve a budget for the 2019-2020 year,  Our annual “potluck” luncheon is always a fun and delicious affair because members provide the most wonderful repast. Let Cathy and Sally know what entree, salad or dessert you will bring to share.

RCC ROSE GARDEN (Stella Thomas)

Join the team that cares for the long garden that borders the Library’s lower parking lot on the grounds of Rowayton Community Center! Learn how to prune and what to weed in this long perennial bed that features peonies, roses, irises and other perennials with a sprinkling of spring annuals.  The group generally meets from 8:30 to 10 am on Monday mornings April through October, weather permitting. Stella will always send an email prior to the work session to confirm it. Bring your own gloves, hat and favorite tools.
