Annual Appeal

Plants and gardens are more important than ever to people’s lives.

Dear Friends,

Now, more than ever, people are looking to gardening for food, sustainable horticulture, to help protect the environment, and for enjoyment.

Your support helps Mass Hort...

...continue our stewardship of our gardens and cultural and historic landscape at Elm Bank, which are on the National Register of Historic Places.

...engage amateur competitors in floral design, photography, and horticulture at the Flower Show, our major outreach activity.

...educate adults, through programs such as the  weekly "Thursday Night at the Hort" series about horticultural/gardening/environmental programs.

...advance the contemporary conversation of Garden to Table with initiatives that bring the Victory Garden and School Garden Movement into the 21st century.

...delight the youngest garden enthusiasts with  youth activities in Weezie's Children's Garden, our Plantmobile (science van) visits to schools and outreach events, and family programs geared to connecting the next generation with the natural world.

We have many great educational programs and garden plans for 2015.  Your support will help make them a reality.

Warm regards,

R. Wayne Mezitt                    Katherine K. Macdonald
