This has been a truly amazing year for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and we have you to thank! Despite a winter filled with snow that covered our gardens (and yours too), we managed to dig out, repair the beautiful landscape and welcome thousands of visitors. We had many other successes as well:
- Opening the Gardens at Elm Bank as a garden tourism destination, featuring daily programming for kids, and tours for everyone
- Collaborating with the Digital Commonwealth to share our library’s collections of more than 1,000 botanical prints, now available online for the public to use
- Welcoming hundreds of children and their families to our newly renovated Weezie’s Children’s garden
- Increasing our educational programs for adults and students, providing opportunities for people to learn and appreciate gardens, plants, and the environment.
You’ve helped us come so far, and yet we have so much more to do. Your donation will help us continue to rejuvenate our gardens, educate a new generation of gardeners, enhance our seed library, supply fresh produce to local food pantries, and so much more.
Please give as generously as you can…We look forward to seeing you in The Gardens at Elm Bank.
