    The Long Garden, 2013Mary Long worked for the New Canaan Public Schools (NCPS) for over thirty years. She was also a New Canaan parent - all of her five children attended New Canaan schools. An avid reader (The Secret Garden by Mary Hodgson Burnett was Mary's favorite book), Mary loved libraries, and she loved to garden. Mary spent her last few years at NCPS working at the New Canaan High School library. When Mary passed, her chidren donated her favorite perennial flowers to this garden, which was planted in Mary's memory by her NCPS friends, colleagues, and students in 2010. The thriving plants were divided in 2013, and the garden was expanded to twice its original size. Community members are invited to help maintain the garden during the summer months, when school is out of session. Please sign up below to participate. Thank you!
