This summer the Rowayton Library and Rowayton Gardeners are collaborating once again to present a 6-week program from 3:30 to 4:30 pm on Thursdays in July and early August at the Potting Shed. We’re featuring 6 different heroes in keeping with the American Library Association “Heroes” theme, and they’ll have a fun environmental twist.
Volunteers are helping with these fun and organized classes held at the Potting Shed. Please note that Summer Garden Camp is intended for ages 4 and up. No registration is necessary – just come!
