The GEC is a volunteer educational non-profit organization committed to enhancing the appreciation and enjoyment of nature through horticulture, conservation and the arts.
We work with community partners to bring awareness and access to the valuable natural resources we have in our town parks and school grounds, our windowsill gardens, and our market baskets.
The GEC is located at the Montgomery Pinetum, in Cos Cob, CT, with greenhouse, learning garden, classrooms, pond, gift shop, and a magnificent collection of Evergreens, woodland trails, wildflowers, and old stone structures and sculptures. We are an hour away from New York City.
