Joan's Essays

In honor of our 80th year anniversary it seemed fitting to publish the essays written by Joan Sargent. Joan was a longtime member of our league and master gardener. She passed away in August of 2012. While a New Canaan Garden Center / NCBL member, she wrote wonderful essays on gardening and plants for our newsletter. Faith Kerchoff has carefully compiled them, reformatted them, and enhanced the essays with photos she found online. We are publishing them here in order to have them available forever.

During our anniversary 2019-2020 year, we will be publishing her monthly essays as the year progresses.  To read the essays click on the links below:
