Join Massachusetts Horticultural Society for a reception to help them bring their horticulture education program into the schools.Â On April 1, you’ll have an opportunity to preview the Step into Spring flower and garden show at the Taste of Spring VIP Preview Party at the Chestnut Hill Mall. The reception, from 7 to 10 p.m., will feature – in addition to an advance peek at the gardens and displays – cocktails and hors d’oeuvre.
Beginning April 2 and continuing through May 15, The Mall at Chestnut Hill will host ‘Step Into Spring’, a flower and garden show featuring richly planted gardens, dazzling floral arrangements and landscapes from award winning designers and horticulturalists. The show will be held in the common areas of the Mall’s two levels. Part of the proceeds from the VIP Preview will benefit the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Plantmobile, the traveling, interactive plant-science program that provides hands-on, exploratory educational programs for children grades K-12. Mass Hort is upgrading the Plantmobile curriculum and plans to send the vehicle and its staff to schools in and around Boston beginning this spring. By attending the VIP Preview Party, you’ll directly benefit Mass Hort and the children served by the Plantmobile. You’ll also have a great evening out. Tickets are $35, and are available online at www.masshort.org, by calling 617-933-4995, or at the door.
