Saturdays, June 19 and June 26, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm – Mass Hort Garden Volunteer Parties

Saturday is a great day to come out to Elm Bank, 700 Washington Street, Wellesley, and help Mass Hort and the Master Gardeners get the gardens into shape. Staff members and Master Gardeners will be there working between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 19, and Saturday, June 26, and you will weed, mulch, and deadhead until everything looks perfect!

Whether or not actual perfection is achieved, volunteers and staff will do what needs to be done to allow the gardens to shine. The bulk of the work will be in the Bressingham garden and we will also finish planting the Trial Garden. You’ll also have fun – pizza for lunch, homemade goodies for dessert, and a plant raffle or two for extra excitement! There will be lots of friendly people working side by side, so this is a great opportunity for new volunteers to “break the ice” and familiarize themselves with the gardens and get to know people.

Please do come out on one or both Saturdays. Bring your favorite tools and sunscreen, and, if you like, a treat to share. If you have any questions or need more information, email Vivien Bouffard, Volunteer Coordinator, at She’s planning to be there both days. You may also telephone (617) 933-4934.
