Environmental Book Club Field Trip to Elm Bank

September 16, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


After a year of meeting at the library, the Environmental Book Club likes to get out into nature. So, join us for a private guided tour of the Elm Bank gardens with an emphasis on environmental issues. You do not need to be a member of the Environmental Book Club to participate!

Massachusetts Horticultural Society is located on 36-acres in the historic Elm Bank Reservation. The site includes open fields and meadows, streams and pools, wooded areas and formal gardens. Mass Hort is uniquely positioned, not only to protect these natural resources, but also to develop spaces that enhance visitors’ appreciation of the landscape and the surrounding Charles River. 

The site includes various gardens, including the Bressingham Garden designed by Adrian Bloom, the historic Italianate Garden, our new Garden to Table Chef’s Garden and its Food Pantry Garden, an educational New England Trial Garden, and Weezie’s Garden for Children, a whimsical children’s garden designed as a series of small spiraling gardens, each with its own theme and unique way of engaging the senses.  Several plant societies and garden clubs have also installed permanent demonstration and display gardens at Elm Bank.

Space is limited to 25 so sign up soon!

This event costs $10 per person entrance to Elm Bank. You can pay this by check at the library or by filling out the following form and paying online through PayPal (you can use a credit card on PayPal):
