Please join the Rowayton Gardeners for a spectacular September Field Trip to Stonegate Farm, an 1860s estate farm near Newburgh in Balmville, NY, where Matthew Benson grows and shares the vegetables, fruits and flowers born of this land that he loves.

He lectures frequently on gardening, food and landscape photography, as well as small-scape farming, sustainability and organics.
