Help us restore the gardens of the Mather Homestead back to their former glory!

The Mather Homestead gardens were once a source of town pride and horticultural wonder. Originally designed by Stephen Mather, the original garden included both native plants and specimens from his work across the United States with National Park Service.

They have been neglected in recent years and the foundation would like to restore them to their former glory to be used for education and public enjoyment. We appreciate the efforts of the many volunteers who joined the board in the fall of 2017 to clean up the gardens. These funds will take the restoration one step further to complete our restoration.

We aim to create a treasured outdoor space that reflects the landscape designs of the many Mather generations. From a colonial “kitchen” garden to the more formal English gardens of Stephen Mather, this space will be a beautiful extension of the historic Mather Homestead.

Specifically, your contributions will go towards:

  • Evergreen shrubs
  • Perennial & annual flowers
  • Mulch & garden soil
  • Garden benches

Help us create a beautiful garden space for all of Darien to enjoy!

Cost to help restore the gardens of the Mather Homestead: $2,500
