Backcountry Greenwich welcomes all to its Fifth Annual Round Hill Association Neighbor Day. Activities begin at 7:30 am and end at 4-5:30 pm with a Tailgate Drinks and Snacks gathering at the Audubon Parking Lot.
Backcountry could be described as the lungs of Greenwich. It has hundreds of acres of open space, most providing trails or gardens for our residents to enjoy. On October 7, 2023, fifteen Backcountry institutions, veggie, food and wine providers, and community organizations will again open their doors to celebrate fall.
New participants/events this year are:
GEMS, Station 4 – offering a tour of their new facilities;
Sacred Heart Greenwich – opening their meadow showcasing their Beekeeping and Native Plants, with students answering questions.
St. Barnabas Episcopal Church – offering a tour of their Richard Fowkes Organ and Philip Ives Sanctuary
2:00 – 2:30
At the North Greenwich Congregational Church (NGCC) handmade goods for sale, all by Afghan evacuees resettled through the coordination of Jewish Family Services and Greenwich churches. Leadership and training by dedicated volunteers from Harvest Time Church, PeaceWork, Inc., and NGCC.
Everyone is welcome, whether or not a member of the RHA. Those who are
members of the Round Hill Association will also receive notices through email.
The Round Hill Association is happy to present the many institutions and foundations and stores that flourish in Backcountry. By clicking on the entities’ icons, you will be taken to their web site.
When one crosses north over the Merritt, to what is colloquially called ‘Backcountry’, the green countryside presents a way of life that is different from much of Greenwich. Bucolic with lots of open space for recreation and exploration. In addition to many trails, populated both by people and horses – the Audubon and Land Trust and Nichols Preserve, there are farms for fresh produce, such as Versailles and Augustine’s, as well as yummy food and wine – Happiness Is, Cobber North, The Round Hill Store, The Study, and even art and sculpture in the Brandt Foundation.
