Gardening 101 @ the Rowayton Library
Come join Rowayton Gardener Erin Combs on Wednesday, May 4th at 11 a.m. at the Rowayton Library for some hands-on garden education in the lovely Community Center and Library gardens. This is a great chance to come and learn about what plants might be right for your space and to ask questions about how to tend them once they are nestled into their new home!
Erin will address springtime gardening concerns & tasks, proper soil amendment, proper plant selection for your garden, all while everyone gets to practice a little gardening of our own with some of the prospective Rowayton Gardener’s plant sale items. If the weather is good we will be working outside on the library grounds so please come prepared to get a bit dirty.
All attendees will receive a $5 coupon towards plant purchases at the Rowayton Gardeners’ Sale on Saturday, May 7th.
Erin has been gardening since she was very small with her parents in Maine but began educating herself formally in college when she took her first job at the Mount Holyoke College arboretum (her alma mater). From there she had numerous landscaping jobs on Long Island and in NYC, and spent a lot of time in various Manhattan rooftop gardens and beautiful townhouse gardens in Brooklyn. Erin started her own small garden design and installation business 6 year ago and has been digging in the dirt ever since. Her real passion, though, is in the garden education field and she just loves to be a part of such a wonderful gardening community as Rowayton.
