Celebrating 30 years of Gardening Organically.
NATUREWORKS GARDEN CENTER
We opened in 1983 and are proud to say that
2013 is our 30th year as
LEADERS in Organic Gardening!
For the THIRD YEAR in a row,
Natureworks has been selected as one of the
REVOLUTIONARY GARDEN CENTERS
2011, 2012 and 2013
Our goal is
twofold. First, we hope to introduce you to Natureworks, a very special
retail garden center in Southern Connecticut. Although small in size
(we are located on merely an acre of land!) we pack a lot into a little
space. Our shop is in a 100-year-old house and is filled to overflowing
with unique gifts and gardening accessories in every season. The plant
benches in our yard are packed with an amazing variety of fascinating
plants, from old-fashioned flowers to the latest cutting-edge
introductions. But the best part of visiting Natureworks are the
gardens. Our demonstration gardens surround the store and the retail
sales yard. They contain most of the plants that we sell, growing in a
style marked with wild abandon. They are a place to stroll and relax as
well as a living classroom.
goal of this website is education. Natureworks
for its educational activities: garden walks, workshops,
demonstrations, classes, our newsletter, our catalog, and our many
handouts on a wide range of subjects. The possibilities for the
dissemination of information are limited mainly by the cost of printing
and distributing the information that we wish to share. Thus, this
website was conceived as a way to share our knowledge and style of
gardening with as many people as possible. It is in its infancy, with
much more to come as we grow more comfortable with the workings of this
powerful medium. Check back with us often - we plan to post more and
more of our handouts and add pictures of our gardens and shop displays.
And, of course, we will regularly update information about classes,
workshops, garden walks, sales, and other events of interest. I hope
that if you live within driving distance of our store you will make it
a point to stop by for a visit. If you live far away, think of us when
you are traveling to the New England area.
On our web site you will find:
The pages containing our events here in Northford as well as the page containing our off-site events are regularly updated and you can find the easy Events link at the bottom of every page and the left sidebar.
Our extensive list of handouts contains many of your favorites and we've added new items to help answer your garden care questions. Bring your cursor to the left side of the page near the word Information then click Handouts.
Emails that are regularly broadcast are also saved here incase you need to locate them in the future. You'll find the Email Archive under Information on the left.
Photos are being added to our landscaping pages so we can show examples of beautiful client gardens resulting from our design, installation and maintenance efforts. We appreciate the opportunity you've given us to share these lovely gardens with the rest of the world.
So feel free to browse through our site and if you have trouble finding anything, just let us know and we'll direct you to the spot you're searching for.
