Welcome to the NuGenesis Teaching Gardens

Grow, learn and connect with where our food comes from!

The NuGenesis Teaching Gardens promote health, wellness, and environmental stewardship through hands-on vegetable gardening and food education.

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.
