Welcome to the NuGenesis Teaching Gardens


NuGenesis to Close October 28th, 2016:

With the close of this growing season, all NuGenesis programs will come to a permanent end. The NuGenesis Team, the Faye Gehl Conservation Foundation (FGCF) and the NG Advisory Committee greatly appreciate the efforts in support of NuGenesis by so many over the years.

FGCF will continue to own and maintain the Stone Bank site and will develop a future vision for the gardens to align with the FGCF mission of healthy agriculture.

On January 1st, 2016, NuGenesis officially became a program of the Faye Gehl Conservation Foundation, Inc. (FGCF) We have been connected with FGCF since moving to our Stone Bank location in 2013. 

The Faye Gehl Conservation Foundation was established in 1994 by the John Gehl Family, longtime area residents, in memory of their wife and mother, Faye Gehl, who was a conservationist and preservationist before these labels were fashionable. To date, the FGCF has protected over 400 acres of wetland, woodland, river corridor and agricultural land primarily in Stone Bank and Monches.  

The Foundation is currently engaged in shoreline, woodland and agricultural restoration projects with an emphasis on restoring soil health in the area.The FGCF and NuGenesis have a shared mission of sustainability. By eating local and organic foods, our environment is enhanced and so are our bodies. 



NuGenesis is a program of the Faye Gehl Conservation Foundation
