Tuesdays, September 30 and October 14, 1:00 pm – Friends of the Public Garden Public Garden Tour Program


The Friends of the Public Garden is launching a Public Garden Tour Program in 2015 and is actively recruiting docents to lead the tours. We are looking for men and women who are passionate about the trees, plantings, sculpture, and history of the Public Garden and who want to share that knowledge and enthusiasm with others.

Requirements for the docent program include: attending six trainings a month, which will be held in January and February 2015; committing to giving two tours per month between May and October, 2015; joining or renewing membership in the Friends of the Public Garden. Docents should be out-going and eager to engage in conversation with the public; a loud voice would also be desirable.

Information sessions for the docent program will be held at the Friends office at 69 Beacon Street on Tuesday, September 30 and Tuesday, October 14 at 1:00 p.m. Please email docents@friendsofthepublicgarden.org or call 617-723-8144 to RSVP.  Photo by Elizabeth Jordan.
