Green Fingers Garden Club Supports Gateway Gardens

At the entrance to Greenwich Point, Christopher Franco, President of Greenwich Point Conservancy, and others cut the ribbon on the Gateway Gardens and the Old Barn Susie H. Baker Pavilion. Green Fingers Garden Club donated the funds for the new gardens and advised Greenwich Point Conservancy and landscaper Peter Grunow on the plantings. As a coastal area, the use of grasses and mostly native plants was important to attract birds and other pollinators and ensure the viability of the landscaping. Green Fingers president Martha Robinson Heard said, “ We are proud to have been a part of the revitalization of one of the jewels of Greenwich. With funds raised from our Preview of Spring Flower Shows, we are gratified to contribute gardens to our community which are in keeping with the natural beauty and historical significance of the Point, and are accessible to all.” read more...
