This is the story of the first communal gardens in Greenwich, but throughout its history Greenwich residents would continue to come together to plant and harvest with an eye to the common good.
For over a century, Greenwich has been home to some of the most picturesque gardens in the United States. Designed by leading 20th-century landscape architects, these sprawling pleasure gardens often included sunken pools, sculpted fountains and an array of native and exotic plants.
