The Rowayton Gardeners are happy to announce the “Garden Gang” is back in action this fall! Join us at the Rowayton Gardeners’ Potting Shed to explore nature’s harvest right outside our shed. Guided by instructors, children will learn about the natural world. Our fall series will focus on what plants and animals do to prepare for winter and why it is so important.

The fee of $70.00 will cover both programs, class materials and a snack ($35.00 for one session). We can only accommodate 15 children, so please register as soon as possible.
