The Rowayton Gardeners are pleased to announce our new offering of ‘Lunch and Learn’ programs at the Potting Shed, for those of you who wish to learn over lunch during a relaxed lecture-style or hands-on program.
Our September 14th ‘Lunch and Learn,’ ‘Demystifying Conifers,’ will consist of a lively, information-packed talk, and walk-about led by Carol Giunta, one of the Rowayton Gardeners’ talented and knowledgeable Master Gardeners. While you are munching your lunch, Carol will explain the world of Coniferous Trees, show some examples of commonly seen conifers in our area, and introduce you to the world of flat friendly firs, single square spruce, and prickly pine packets. After lunch, we will head across the field to try our hand at identifying the various conifers in the north border of the Community Center.Continue reading“Lunch & Learn at the Potting Shed: Demystifying Conifers”
