A Historic Connecticut Garden Tour

This garden tour will also offer a primer on permaculture. You’ll learn about unique, easy-care, vegetable, fruiting, and herbal plants that thrive in the Northeast and their uses.
How do we know they'll thrive in your garden? Because they’re planted throughout ours.
About our Connecticut Garden Tour Guide
Colin Pearson is the current Innkeeper at Stanton House Inn. The house has been in his family for generations. And its history over the century always fascinated him. Before returning to Greenwich to take-over Stanton House Inn, Colin worked as:
- A Peace Corps volunteer in rural Malawi, introducing permaculture to improve farmers' quality of life
- A small-hold farmer in Western Massachusetts
