The Trustees are pleased to announce that the 25th annual South End Garden Tour will take place this year on Saturday, June 16, from 10a.m. to 4 p.m..
Each year the South End Garden Tour features gardens in a different section of the country’s largest district of surviving row houses and this year’s tour is centered on gardens and green spaces in and around the area bordered by Columbus Avenue and Tremont Street between Dartmouth Street and Rutland Square. Also included is the area from West Newton Street to Holyoke Street between Columbus Avenue and the Southwest Corridor Park. The self-guided tour will begin at 685 Tremont St. in front of Library Park and features a mix of public and private spaces including private back yards, front gardens, community gardens, and neighborhood ‘pocket parks.’ For more details on Trustees gardens, please visit thetrustees.org/communitygardens.
Musicians from the Community Music Center will be providing concerts in the gardens from noon to 4 p.m.
Proceeds from the tour support community gardening in Boston, including the sixteen original gardens and ‘pocket parks’ from the South End Lower Roxbury Open Space Land Trust. These gardens provide critical green space, a place for neighbors to come together in community, and an opportunity to grow and share fresh healthy food.
Advance tickets are $24 for Trustees members, $30 for nonmembers are available online at thetrustees.org/SEGT and $28 for Trustees members, $35 for nonmembers on the day of the Tour. Information about volunteering or purchasing an advertisement in the booklet can also be found there as well.
