The Rowayton Gardeners took advantage of a Federated Garden Clubs of CT grant to purchase and plant a beautiful columnar oak tree at Farm Creek Preserve recently. Several members welcomed the tall young oak to its new home.

Choice of Public Location
After some consideration, we chose the Norwalk Land Trust Farm Creek Nature Preserve. This is a 16 acre parcel of land that was saved from development by grass roots fund raising efforts from Rowayton residents. It is a place that is valued for its beauty and appreciated for its place that is can never be developed. People from all over Norwalk come to walk the trails. Families come with their children to bird watch and scout fiddler crabs. Each spring the every fourth grade class in the Norwalk Public School System takes a field trip to Farm Creek to learn about nature and ecology. The preserve lost many very old oaks during Hurricanes Irene and Sandy. We felt that replacing an oak at Farm Creek would be a wonderful way to thank the Norwalk Land Trust for its stewardship to open space preservation in our community.
