The Seal of the Shelton Land Conservation Trust shows a landscape of a typical rural New England scene...the hardy maple tree and the stately spruce located on a natural site.

Our purpose is the preservation and protection of natural resources in Shelton, Connecticut, and the acceptance or purchase of land and its maintenance for the public benefit.

Organic Gardening with Guy

Stay tuned for future dates here and on Facebook. FaceBook logo
Where: Guy's Eco Garden
276 Leavenworth Road (RT 110), Shelton, CT

Join Land Trust member and organic farmer Guy Beardsley to learn about growing vegetables organically. This is a 4 part program from seed to harvest. The program is designed for families with interest in planting a garden of their own at home. Families will learn about testing and amending soil, seed preparation, planting, bugs and diseases, care throughout the growing season, cultivation, and harvest. Future dates will be announced based on the growing season.

The Shelton Land Trust values the role of our local growers and the farmland they keep free from development. Space is limited so sign ups are first come first serve. The program is free, to sign up email
