4th Annual 5K Walk/Run

September 27

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to run and walk in the Eastman 5k Photo Finish race this past Saturday. Many thanks to RCGC team members Guy Coppola, Catherine Coppola, Marcia Erwin,  Emily Lidie, Liam Lidie, Emily Froehlich, Christine Froehlich, Milli Piccione and Theresa Zink. You guys rock! Together a total of $3815 was raised toward our goal of $4000, which helps to support our education programs.

Thanks so much to everyone  who donated to our team and helped make this happen. We really appreciate your support.

You can still donate to our team up until October 27th here.


Professional credits: 

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.

It's now more convenient than ever to borrow books from our library:

Borrow books from RCGC and pick them up at any Monroe County public library
Thanks to a new partnership with the Monroe County Library System (MCLS), we are now able to send our books through the MCLS delivery service.
Find the book(s) you want to borrow using the RCGC Online Library Catalog Search (search box is on the
left hand side of every page on our website) and then use the form on the search page to send us your hold request. Or phone (585-473-5130) or email us (rcgclib@frontiernet.net) with your request.
We will contact you to confirm your hold request and let you know when your book(s) will be available at the MCLS library of your choice.
Pick up your book(s) at the library you have chosen. No MCLS library card needed. No fees. No hassles. Simply give them your name and tell them you have RCGC book(s) on hold.
