Thanks so much for including a mention of the Weston Garden Club Garden Tour in your April 29th post. The Owl certainly does have her ear to the ground on local events! I was planning to send you some material on the garden tour after Celebrate Weston for possible inclusion in the weeks before the tour but am now wondering if it would be helpful for you to have it earlier to use at your convenience. If you prefer, I can re-send all this closer to the date. I have some lovely high-resolution photos of included gardens but I’m not sure how to send them through this form. I can also forward an email that was distributed to our members with lots of photos and information to draw from, including a link to a tour invitation video prepared by Weston Media Center. For now, I’ll include a bit of information below about how the Weston Garden Club plans to use the proceeds to support local conservation and environmental efforts and the Weston Garden Club’s ongoing community educational and beautification projects.
Joyce Frank, for the Weston Garden Club
On Saturday, June 4, 2022, members of the Weston Garden Club will open their gardens to the public for a once-in-a-decade celebration.
Eleven unique gardens will include native plants, pollinators, garden rooms, water features, and more.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 on the tour day. Program pickup and day-of-tour sales begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Josiah Smith Tavern.
Tickets provide admission to 10 private outdoor garden spaces on the tour and the Native Plant Garden at Town Hall, where all native varieties on view are labeled. Hostesses will be present at each site to answer questions, along with owners at the private gardens. A program and map booklet will provide detailed information on each garden.
Proceeds from the tour will support local conservation and environmental efforts and the Weston Garden Club’s ongoing community educational and beautification projects. These include seasonal plantings in the stone trough on Boston Post Road, design and maintenance of the Native Plant Garden beside Weston Town Hall and of the granite planter in the new Town Square, stewardship of the Forbes Land conservation area, and holiday wreaths for town buildings.
