Garden club reviews Keiser easement, use of native plants

Pat Sesto, director of Environmental Affairs in Wilton, will review the open space easement under consideration for the Keiser property at a meeting of the  Wilton Garden Club on  Monday, Nov. 11. Ms. Sesto’s talk will open the meeting.

An easement for 39 acres of the property at Cannon and Seeley Roads would be purchased by the town if voters approve at a Special Town Meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 19, with an adjourned vote Nov. 23. The cost of $2.2 million would be bonded. The Wilton Conservation Land Trust would contribute $300,000 to the total $2.5 million price.

The club will also hear from author and landscape architect Carolyn Summers who will give a presentation on Gardens filled with Life, showing how native plants can be used successfully in a traditional landscape design.

The meeting will take place at Pilgrim Hall of Wilton Congregational Church, 70 Ridgefield Road. Registration begins at 10:45 a.m., with the program at 11.

This program is free and open to the public, but non-members must RSVP by calling 203-761-9846 or emailing
