Our updated New Canaan Garden Club website is now LIVE! It is always a work-in-progress but the content, graphics and navigation tools have all been updated and enhanced.
SPECIAL MESSAGE TO ALL NCGC MEMBERS
A sustainable garden should be able to adapt and continue indefinitely without requiring external inputs. A sustainable garden must not leave its environment depleted, but restored and in balance. A sustainable garden should be easy on the gardener, requiring low maintenance and little demand on the budget.
