Celebrating 50 years in Warner Castle

2014 marks our 50th year as stewards of Warner Castle and its gardens. Help us to celebrate our anniversary and our border gardens rehabilitation project. These gardens were a part of
Alling DeForest’s original 1932 design, and are an important element of the historical landscape.

Join us on Wednesday, September 24, from 6-7:30 pm for refreshments and guided tours of the Castle, built in 1854 by Horatio Gates Warner to resemble his ancestral castle in Scotland, and of the grounds. For more information visit our webpage.



4th Annual 5K


September 27

RCGC will be participating again this year in the George Eastman House Photo Finish 5K run/walk event, which benefits the George Eastman House and gives other not-for-profit organizations a chance to fundraise for their cause. Last year our team raised $2418.75; this year our goal is $4000. Help us reach our goal – you’ll help support our education programs for the coming year! Click here to join our team or make a secure on-line donation. We appreciate your support, it makes a big difference in what we can achieve in our programming for the coming year.

Almost all of our classes qualify for CNLP credits. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Nursery & Landscape Professional, visit the New York State Nursery and Landscape Association's website for more information.
